COLORADO SPRINGS -

Fans got out of downtown Colorado Springs today to catch the Colorado Classic from the best vantage points. Some wanted to be on the straight aways in Old Colorado City, others found away to jump from one location to another around 30th St.

At Garden of the Gods it was about seeing the cyclists challenged, especially at Ridge Road. There were a lot of people familiar with cycling and racing there. To get to the spot fans had to hike blocks up the hill, giving them the best vantage point to see the riders try to get up the steep hill into Garden of the Gods.

"Just because it's the steepest hill on the entire course. And seeing how their faces is pretty funny and this the place where if they're going to pass people it's one of the best places to do so. Just because it's so steep," Scott Jiroous said.

Roads were closed along the course from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

It'll cost you more than $100 and even though they advertise it as a national permit, it's not valid in Colorado and a number of other states.
