What a Weekend!

Endurance Maximus Breckenridge was a huge success over the weekend. The USA Pro Cycling Challenge Stage 5 was epic and it was amazing to witness American Cycling at this level. You would have thought you were watching the tour with the crowds on the climbs and names like Evans, Schleck, Voigt, Hincapie and more racing through Frisco and upto Breck. The EC Store was in a primo location and the crowds hit town in force!

After a full day of slinging tees and catching up with all our EC friends at Pearl Izumi, Skeleton Eyewear, Jelly Belly and the like, I high-tailed it out of town and headed to Denver for a late night rendezvous with ALO at the Bluebird Theater. That’s a totally separate story, but what an amazing performance by some really down to earth, cool guys. It’s rare when you literally enjoy every single song in a show, and the entire crowd was dancing and singing along the whole night. Very cool indeed! There’s more to the story, but I’ll save that for tomorrow’s blog.

We would have loved to keep the space – an old barn styled structure with a completely revamped inside – very cool and totally fitting of the EC vibe.

Bikes were littered everywhere around town. Anything that was secure to the ground had bikes locked to or leaning against it.

Mavic provided neutral service support for the event.

Recently crowned Tour de France Champ Cadel Evans.

Mr. Schleck, I presume.

It was as though Jens Voigt stopped and struck a pose just for this shot.

The hero of stage 2 in Aspen, Mr. Hincapie.

More on the late, late night with ALO tomorrow. Simply put, awesome night!
