results-2008.pdf Tour de Ski took place Jan 12th up at Purgatory. DEVO alumni Tad Elliott took the top spot, beating out DEVO ride instructors Miles Venzara and Travis Brown. This being the inaugural event, the 40k ski took riders from the top of lift 4 to the valley out towards the Hermosa Creek Trail and then up relay creek rd towards the love shack and back. BURLY. The 20k option kept the skiers in the valley, which was won by Amy Dombroski, a Boulderite super-cyclist attending FLC. Keep an eye on her this spring. DEVO coach Chad Cheeney was second and DHS cycling alumni Alex Howard was third. A good time was had by all. The event was organized by Trail 2000’s Mary Monroe and Jamie Wienk.
