US Pro Cycling Challenge finishing on Flag and Flatwater Shout

28 02 2012

Bittersweet.  So stage 6 of the US Pro Cycling Challenge will finish on Flagstaff in Boulder. Yeah!  But they are finishing at the flagpole at the amphitheater. WHAT?!  Ok, I understand the finish at the mailboxes on top of Super Flag is a little tight for media and fans, but as Dan aptly put it, finishing at the amphitheater is like doing “Sissy Flag”.  The local test piece isn’t the same without the Super part.  You may as well just call it Castrated Flag.  I know every little speck of pavement on that climb, and the gruntiest parts are above the amphitheater turn off.  Wouldn’t it be nice to see that familiar look of agony on the uber-pros’ faces when they look up and see the Wall?  Here is that vid of my Flag descent to the tunes of Justin Timberlake.  I’m such a girl.

Lest all you Boulderites think that all sweetness resides in the Bubble, I have to let you know that there is a club out in Nebraska that kicks ass.  Yes, Nebraska.  Flatwater Cycling is stylin in Alchemist custom BLACKBOXX kits, complete with premium Italian fabrics, eco-Ink, custom Flatlock stitching, and Powerband grippers. While I’d like to take credit for that sweet design, I have to give props to Sean at Flatwater for the killer graphics.  We are honored to partner with these Nebraskan badasses on their custom cycling jerseys and kits. Props fellas.
