My thought on a MTF on Red Mountain is that with everything that would be needed, there would be a ton of trampling of the vegitation on either side of the road up there. Also, the descent into Ouray would be awesome and a shame to miss out on.
I can't watch it live either and only hope to see highlights online later. I saw 2 stages last year, but it looks like I won't see any stages in person this year.
Yep, gonna have to impact the vegitation. The solution; don't use it again for thre or four years. Make the final kms along an area where road work has already disturb the natural fauna. No problems, only solutions.
