Durango Fall Blaze is September 27th

  |   Uncategorized

Hosted by Fort Lewis College, the Durango Fall Blaze offers three different tour options, including a 37 mile, 60 mile, and 100 mile ride. The fabulous Tom Danielson (Garmin Chipotle Pro Cycling) will lead the ride! The first of two fabulous parties is on Friday (September 26th) on the eve of the ride. Its the Fabulous Fall Blaze Packet Pickup Party at the Three Springs Neighborhood Information Center!  On Saturday morning (September 27th) a cannon blast starts the tour(s) and a Police Escort leads the riders out from the center of campus. There are 5 food/aid stations along the way, and support vehicles on the course.  The second party is at the finish line back in the center of campus. Its the Merrill Lynch Lunch!  The rides are legendary, and the parties are out of this world! The ridership is limited to ensure a quality event. The century course is of medium difficulty when compared to centuries around the country, and the 37 mile and the 60 mile are easier. All proceeds benefit the Tom Danielson Scholarship Fund at Fort Lewis College.

Breckenridge has been good to DEVO thus far. The team is staying in a pretty nice condo just across the street from the circuit race. Fifteen athletes/coaches fill the place with not much room for any thing else. The team did really good and expects to do well tomorrow during Sunday’s cross country race.
