Has classic potential.. Golden – Boulder – Ned – Lyons – Lee Hill – Boulder – Flagstaff. Might be worth turnin’ on the ol’ telly there for the final five miles.

…After the sprint points have been awarded, the route will head up Boulder Canyon along CO 119 towards Nederland and the day’s first King of the Mountains (KOM) competition. Joining the cycling fans in this small mountain town will be the 14th Annual Nedfest, a music, arts and microbrew festival. Riders will continue climbing as they are faced with ascents exceeding 9,300 ft. on the incredible Peak to Peak Highway before a long and fast descent into the town of Lyons, where they will encounter another sprint line.

Classic local climbs up Lefthand Canyon and Lee Hill Rd. present the next set of challenges for the riders before they return for one final pass through downtown Boulder. In a dramatic race to the finish, the riders will head up “The Hill” to Flagstaff Mountain where a 3.5-mile vertical race to the finish line at Sunrise Amphitheater will commence.
