Those who attended the press conference in the Denver Post building, where Cadel Evans, Shawn Hunter (Race Organizer), Jim Birrel (Race Director), Jonathan Vaughters and Christian VandeVelde (representing their team who won best overall team), Levi Leipheimer (Leader), Rafael Montiel (best climber), TeJay VanGarderen (best young rider), and Timmy Duggan (most aggressive rider - stage 6). Daniel Oss (the stage winner) did not attend, nor did Elia Viviani (best sprinter), but I heard later from a fan, that Viviani was at the Festival Expo in Civic Center Park at the Cannondale vendor booth signing autographs after the race.
At press conferences, a moderator first asks questions of each rider on the panel in the front. Today's guests were the overall final jersey winners for 2011. After each jersey winner spoke, questions were opened to the journalists in the audience. These journalists represent national and local newspapers, trade magazines, and other forms of media.
