Re: “Colorado lawmakers look to better protect Olympic athletes

Olympic City?

In terms of events that are sanctioned by National Governing Bodies NGB's) of the USOC here in town, there are actually very few.

Re: “Colorado Springs scores so-so in parks

I have organized mountain bicycle races here in the Pikes Peak Region since 1992. Over 100 actually.

With permits from the City, El Paso County State Parks and the US Forest Service I have held local Wednesday races, State Championships and four races on the International Calendar with my last big race one notch below World Cup status. In that last race the Elite Woman World Champion and the then Elite Men's World Cup leader won their races. All without any City support.

All Parks staff have gone over the top to help make our our courses tremendous. With myself and my staff working directly with Parks staff, you can be assured of their dedication to our Parks. Once they learned of our same dedication and that we live and play here and in our same Parks and that responsble course design and race day management for bike racing does not harm our trails, we were all good.

But, all of our Parks are so underfunded in all areas. Support for our various Parks departments is so important. We need the funding for maintenance, trail signage, current trail maps and marketing.

On the topic of marketing, there is nothing.
Look at marketing in Fruita, CO. And now, Canon City is coming on strong. The economic impact of cycling is huge and we are missing it big time.

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend in our many Parks. Get out there and ride. Stay safe and yield.
