When you think about good vibes this is the race that brings them out. Here are some images from past years. Folks having a great time. These guys pictured above were out having a great time in Steamboat and in the meantime giving us all a chuckle.
Here was a guy relaxing for the racers up on Vail Pass prior to the time trial. Sweet spot for a hammock!
Great athletes inspiring a future athlete!
New Friends and Old Friends in Steamboat!
Roof Top Maragaritas and a Cadel Fan.
And this is one happy guy who is psyched to be a part of it all! If you haven’t seen a race yet make plans to get to one of the seven stages, there is still time. Oh, and be mindful of the racers. Run beside them, not in front of them.
