Cycling season is just starting for me and was planning on riding the event this year and was not looking forward the usual event date. Was going to have to train pretty hard to ride the early year event (tourdeblast.com). Just noticed on website that they announced the 2013 date. Glad they moved it from there usual early in the year start to Sept 21. They've always held the event in May or June where the weather still can be a chore especially in that altitude. Cold windy rainy days are the norm throughout early half of the year. Best part is that it gives me an additional 3-4 months of training period to take on the 82 mile course with 6,240 feet of elevation climb. At 50 yrs old and 20lbs overweight (amazing how much you could gain off season), I need all the extra training/riding I could get.
See you guys out on the road. Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable cycling year/season.
