Stage 2-August 19th
We arrived early to Crested Butte. As Mike has experienced the race for 3 years now he is well aware of the ins and outs of the event. Getting a good parking spot and then getting a good location to view the riders at the finish is critical!
We head over to Camp 4 Coffee, for a cup and while there become aware that two of the commentators for the race are there too. We are familiar with Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen as they have announced the Tour de France for years! They are exceptionally good at what they do and we have enjoyed them from years of viewing cycling events, so I decide to say “thanks for such great work” and go up to meet them. They are friendly & charming and I get a photo with them as a bonus! Nice way to start the event!
