The final Tour of Colorado 2009 race will be August 30th in Superior, Colorado.

The Koppenberg Road Race, a 5.5 mile circuit features only 300 ft elevation gain per lap but much of that is jammed into a two-mile section of dirt road with one very short yet steep 17-percent climb.

Final overall Tour of Colorado jerseys will be presented to the overall winners in four classes. If race organizers are lucky, maybe Governor Bill Ritter will show up in his Tour of Colorado jersey.

In the Pro, Category 1, 2 Men’s field, Jonathan Baker (Natural Grocers p/b XP Companies) has a virtual lock on his second Tour of Colorado series title. The Senior Men’s Category 35+ race has Matthew Segur (Mix 1 Team) leading and if Segur can earn the points, he too, will win his second Tour of Colorado.

Terri Clouse (Colorado Bike Law) leads teammate Susannah Gordon by just 2 points going into the Koppenberg in the Senior Women’s Category 1, 2 class. Jason Anderson (Natural Grocers p/b XP Companies) has the Senior Men’s Category 3 title locked up.

With Tour of Colorado races this year in Boulder, Durango, Glenwood Springs and Salida, the Koppenberg in Superior finishes the Tour of Colorado season with one of the most difficult races in Colorado. With more and more Colorado (and non-Colorado) Cities wanting to host a 2010 Tour of Colorado race, event selection is now beginning as well as sponsorships.

Pactimo is the Tour of Colorado Official Apparel Sponsor and the Tour of Colorado is proud to have Pactimo return for their third year in 2010. The Tour of Colorado is a Sand Creek Sports, Inc. event. For complete Tour of Colorado information please contact Sand Creek Sports, Inc. and visit the Tour of Colorado web site.
