Stage 6 is Where It’s At

Much of the course of the 2012 USA Pro Cycling Challenge seems like it was designed by Chambers of Commerce, not bike racing professionals. The Breck – CS stage, for instance, which begins with Hoosier Pass then rolls flat and downhill for a zillion miles to the finish, is almost a waste. But stage 6, Golden to Boulder (by way of Nederland and Lyons), is going to provide a lot of action and a lot of separation. There aren’t any flat roads on this route — even the flat sections are hilly. There will be some desperate moves on the final climb up Flagstaff Mountain. Great stage. Saturday. (Wednesday’s Gunnison – Aspen stage includes two big passes and should also provide some G.C. fireworks — watch that final descent into Aspen, very tricky.)
