The Buffalo’s Dominate in Durango

By Chris Baddick

The University of Colorado Cycling team executed a clean sweep of the Rocky Mountain Collegiate
Conference Championships in Durango this weekend.
Learn how the CU Triathlete Team also did very well at Nationals last weekend by winning overall team title

The 2005 National champions showed an encouraging return to form, and the team is now confident
going into the National Championships held in Ogden, UT from the 2nd to 6th May.

CU Cycling brought a 35 strong team to battle Fort Lewis College on their own turf, and it paid off.
Josh Yeaton, a senior from Anchorage Alaska, showed his form with back to back wins in the Criterium and Road Race.

A decisive hill close to the end of the road race proved enough to split the pack in the strong Men’s A field. Yeaton took full advantage and moved away from the bunch with Fort Lewis rider and Mountain Bike National Champion Rotem Ishay on the last lap, and easily crossed the line alone for the win. Josh will head the six-strong men’s team in Ogden next weekend.

The women’s team showed equal domination over the SkyHawks. The girls set off a minute behind Fort Lewis in the Team Time Trial and passed them on the road. Heather Fischer, Abby Mickey, Christa Ghent and Claire Bensard have been practicing their time trial skills twice a week all semester under the guidance of experienced Women’s coach Margell Abel. This team will be hot favorites going into Nationals.

The women’s mass-start races were equally dominated by the Buffalos. Heather Fischer, a Senior in International Affairs, battled with Sarah Sturm of Fort Lewis in both races, but edged her out on the hills of Durango to take double Gold. Heather, a climbing specialist, will be a marked rider on the start line of the hilly Ogden course.

Boulder cyclists, Evelyn Stevens, has done what no other American female cyclists has done before, she won La Flèche Wallonne Féminine

Since her victory a few days ago her name has been blowing up in Google and other news sites. Velonews interviewed Evelyn, here is a snipet

A pro since 2010, the former Wall Street investment banker and collegiate tennis player becomes the second American to win (Lance Armstrong won the men’s edition in 1996) the Belgian classic. Stevens’ Flèche win was the first for an American woman and all-but-assured her a trip to the London Olympics in July. (Currently fifth, she needs to remain in the top-10 of the World Cup rankings through round 4 next month to automatically qualify.)

USA Cycling covered this momental event for women's cycling winning Fleche Wallonne Feminine

For the first time in the race's 15-year history, an American won the La Flèche Wallonne Féminine on Wednesday in Huy, Belgium. Evelyn Stevens (Boulder, Colo./Specialized-lululemon), riding for her trade team, passed Marianne Vos (NED/Rabobank Women Team) on the second and final climb up on the Mur de Huy to win on a chilly and occasionally rainy day in eastern Belgium.
In a race that featured 157 riders from 26 different countries, Stevens became the first American woman to reach the podium of La Flèche Wallonne Féminine, completing the 123-kilometer race in 3:26:32.

Aspen Councilmen pushes for more sponsorship money

From Aspen Daily News

Budgeted sponsorship revenue of $60,000 for this summer’s professional cycling race “seems light,” Aspen City Councilman Derek Johnson said, and organizers should “reach for the stars” in an attempt to offset the public’s cost to hold the two-day event in Aspen.
