New Colorado Classic bike race is heavy on festivals and fan-centric fun

The Colorado Classic bike race, which will be held August 10 to 13, is a UCI 2.HC event. Just one step below the top WorldTour level. More importantly, it represents a significant shift from the classic model of stage races. First, it’s not point-to-point. Instead, stages for men’s and women’s fields will be circuit-style. A more audience-friendly format. It also centers on the Front Range’s largest two cities: Denver and Colorado Springs (with a trip to ski-resort town Breckenridge).
But the race itself won’t be the only thing drawing in fans. In conjunction with the weekend stages, organizers announced a festival format called Velorama Colorado. Held around the start/finish area in Denver’s emerging River North neighborhood. Velorama will feature beer gardens, food, an expo and marketplace, and concerts by headliners, including popular alt-rock bands Wilco and Death Cab for Cutie.
