USA Pro Cycling Tour Finishes Today in Telluride

In Telluride, as huge crowds await the stage one finish of the USA Pro Cycling Tour, the buzz is reaching feverish levels. Tents are lined up along the main thoroughfare and people are already positioning chairs down the street near the finish. On Saturday, some Telluride locals helped kick off the event with an irreverent tribute to cycling:a pre-race fun cruiser criterium around town. Thanks to Matt Steen for organizing the crit and for Brett Schreckengost for the video above.
