Even Governor Hickenlooper thinks the AntiEpic should happen - from today's address:
"Hickenlooper noted the success of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge last year, but said there needed to be a race "for the rest of us." He called for a "Pedal the Plains" race in the eastern swath of Colorado. 'We think a bike tour across the Eastern Plains will not only be great for the sport of cycling, it will also give folks an opportunity to see where our food comes from,' the governor said."
I wonder if llamas qualify as food?
