Photo Highlights Stage 7

There was a Time Trial in Denver today. 
What a way to wrap up a fantastic week of racing in Colorado. I can't believe it is over. I don't want it to be over, I can't wait to hear what the route will be in 2013.

It was an incredible day in Denver. I will do a write-up tomorrow, plus many more stories to wrap up the week of racing. Stick around, this race is over but not forgotten.
