Analysis by Joe Lindsey, Bicycling.com blogger and Colorado Resident
This stage looks honestly a lot like the old Sierra Road stage from the Tour of California, where they started with Sierra. The image of seeing Jens Voigt starting under the “Howdy Folks, Welcome to Golden!” sign will be worth every penny. After a quick warm-up loop around the exotic environs of Arvada, Colorado, riders have a nice, brutish ascent of Lookout Mountain, a cherished climb for area riders. But after the descent, it’s basically gently downhill all the way to Denver and five laps of a circuit around Speer Boulevard before a sprint finish at the State Capitol. If Taylor Phinney doesn’t win here, I’m not sure what the mainstream Denver press will do – send Elvis Dumervil after the winner?

Note: Stage route, exact start/finish, and sprints/climbs have been approximated from information provided by UsaProcyclingChallenge.com. Actual stage may vary slightly.
