Undoubtedly the American Classic of International Cycling. This legendary stage race spanned the American West. Transversing Colorado’s Aspen and Vail plus the amazing Morgul-Bismarck. Grand Junction, Colorado with it’s unique terrain became know as “The Tour of the Moon”. Other recurring stages occurred in California included San Francisco. I consider myself fortunate to have this event as my very first introduction to “world-class” cycling.
