eleven said:It would be rather epic, but can you really have an mountain top finish at 14,000+ feet?! I suspect the medical crowd might frown upon it.

The Tour of Colorado presented by LiveStrong.com (.org??).

DirtyWorks said:....................They would need to cross the Sierras via dirt roads to get legitimate Cat 1 climbs. I'd go watch that in person, but it's not going to happen.
mr. tibbs said:Tour of Utah, anyone? How is this race always overlooked in articles like this? It would be great if Colorado got a race, but Utah HAS one. And it's a pretty damn good one.
If you're looking for a good US stage race, I recommend checking it out. It's definitely got some of the best climbing in the US. And it already exists. Keep hoping for other races, but don't forget to support the ones that we have while you're doing it!
Why would a Tour of America have to be coast to coast?Willy_Voet said:It would be epic. Not sure riders could handle the 4 week tour, though. Transfers would be a *****, too.
Maybe alternate between coasts?

Id love to see a big Colorado race, and it would be awesome to see maybe george hincapie and lance get behind it. Lance bolstered the leadville 100 by showing up. It would be huge for american cycling if those 2 even after retirement rode or sponsored some of these big races.
avanti said:There are several good roads that cross the Sierras.
How about this route:
29,000 ft of climbing.

@Dirty: I loves me some Nature Valley, and racing Elk Grove has always been a dream of mine.
It is OK we have 2 new guys to hate Millar /T. Dekker9000ft said:Well, having LA involved one way or another would be the best possible thing that could happen to the CN forum.

I would hope not to see them ride. No reason this couldn't develop into a serious stage race with top level participants. American cycling has put on some impressive races in the past; these two riding around would make a mockery of the race and bring unnecessary faded and jaded star power.turtlesoup said:It would be huge for american cycling if those 2 even after retirement rode or sponsored some of these big races.
