It looks like a big UCI stage race will be coming to Colorado in 2011. This is something Governor Ritter and Lance Armstrong have been working on. Tomorrow morning on the steps of the state capital will be an official announcement.
Here is the announcement:
Dear Colorado Cyclist,
On behalf of USA Cycling and the sport of cycling in Colorado, I would like to invite you to attend a special announcement on the steps of the Colorado State Capitol this Wednesday morning at 10:00 a.m. We’d like to show appreciation for Governor Ritter, Lance Armstrong and others as they unveil plans to bring major international bicycle racing back to the great state of Colorado!
We hope you can join us Wednesday, Aug. 4 at 10:00 a.m. on the steps of the Colorado State Capitol at 200 E. Colfax Ave., Denver, CO. It's going to be crowded so you might want to come early!
Also, Lance just announced via Twitter that he and the Governor are leading a short ride immediately following the event so you might want to come dressed and ready to ride!
Yours in cycling,
Steve Johnson, CEO
