This Thursday is the sprint from Vail to the top of Old Route 6(where the bike path meets the road as you ride down towards Vail from Vail Pass). The first riders leave Vail for what is expected to be a 25 minute sprint at 1 pm. For those wanting to ride up to see this event I plan to leave from the West Frisco Parking area at 11am. This should get us to the finish line prior to the first sprinters finishing. I have been told that this is too late to start and that we should be at the finish by 8 am, so make up your own mind. Bring water, a rain jacket, something to eat and a bike lock. The last riders should finish around 3:30 pm.
For those wanting to see the finish Saturday in Breckenridge a jumbotron will be set up in Blue River Plaza (where the visitor center is located on Main Street). This location will allow visitors to see the event on the big screen as well as be near the finish. Traffic may be a major problem so I would recommend being in Breckenridge no later than 1 pm.
