Here is a photo from the Pro Tour Challenge thats going on in Colorado this week. If I'm not mistaken this is the dirt climb that leads up to the Cottonwood Pass. I did this climb a couple of years ago when I did the BTC with a buddy and this is a great climb. As you can see the road is super-smooth and even though you are climbing it feels like its begging you to go faster so you can get to the end but then the end never seems to come, then comes the eye-watering descent and your just hanging on. I have only done a handful of passes but this is my second most memorable behind Pico de Veleta. I have a few miles on that one. I think this is the stage that Big George won. Go Hincapie. Oh yeah, I took this photo from the Velonews website, as well as many others over the course of time, so I should say thanks to them, hopefully they don't mind. How could a racer live without Velonews? Its actually part of my breakfast every morning.
