Stage 3, August 25: East Vail Time Trial
The 10 miles between Vail and the finish of the stage 3 time trial are perhaps the most decisive of the race. If a rider can’t recover from the previous day’s 130 miles, he could lose minutes. Equipment choice will be key — riders will have to weigh aerodynamics against weight, particularly if the down-valley winds crank up.
