GOLDEN - Stage 3 - August 24

On paper, Stage 3 in Golden looks like a sprinter’s delight with seven swift laps of a nine-mile circuit that starts and finishes under the iconic Golden arch downtown. But don’t be fooled as the short steep climb up the historic Washington St. is enough for a mini-QOM on the last lap, combined with additional rollers, add up to over 4,000’ of vertical. Look for breakaway attempts and sprint trains after the non-climbers have waited for two days to get on terrain that suits them.
