How about those podium girls!!

There was a time in which the Clasico RCN used to attract a lot of stars from the European circuit. Since Colombian cycling declined in the 90's it all went away. Some stars that came to Colombia to race this Classic were Pascal Simon, Greg Lemond, Bernard Hinault and others.

We need a solid 1 week race so maybe one day could be Protour. It is sad that a Country with a richer cycling history and probably bigger prospects that a lot of the lesser cycling countries in Europe, it does not have a Protour race.

the reason many europeans went to ride clasico rcn in 80s and early 90s was because it was then held in june before the tour, excellent high altitude preparation and a LOT of money was given to europeans racing there. in the 90s colombia was completely ****ed up by socialist governments and in the past 10 years it's going back to older glory.
