Avon tax hike idea dies Council won’t send $100M ‘Connect Avon Now’ plan to voters By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Avon’s town council will not send a $100 million community-wide upgrade plan to voters. Council members said last night that Connect Avon Now was the right project, but the wrong time to ask voters to stomach a tax increase to pay for it. The plan died in a procedural maneuver when no one on the council made a motion to approve it, no one made a motion to reject it, and no one made a motion to table it. The project will not come back until this council or a future council resurrects it, and council members made it clear that won’t happen until the economy improves.


Connect Avon Now projected spending $100 million over the next 20 years to create a cohesive community built around public transit, parking and pedestrian and bike trails. After two public hearings, the town council had to pull the trigger last night with a decision, or let it die. The seven-member council said they had heard from their constituents and were trying to be sensitive to the economic problems everyone is having, and decided to let it die. The Latte Test The ambitious project would have been funded by a combination sales and property taxes. The formula had guests paying a significant share; the town staff calculates that for every dollar guests

pay, they get $3 worth of infrastructure. The .85 percent sales tax increase would have cost consumers about $3.40 more if they spent $400 a month in town. It would have pushed Avon’s sales tax over 9 percent. Some business owners say customers complain about taxes of any sort, and increased sales taxes will be no different. Customers are especially sensitive to paying sales taxes for food. Businesses in the town core and Village at Avon – Wal-Mart and Home Depot - would have generated 80 percent of that sales tax revenue. On the other hand, Avon is the only town in the valley that does not charge use taxes, taxes on goods and materials brought into the town and used or consumed.

Stocks dropped for a second day Tuesday after home sales fell unexpectedly and the White House said it would fight a court ruling that lifted its ban on offshore oil drilling. The Dow Jones industrial average fell about 149 points, its biggest drop in about two weeks, to close at 10,293.52. The Standard&Poors 500 Index fell 17.89 to close at 1095.31, while the Nasdaq Composite Index fell 27.29 to close at 2261.80.

15 miles of new trails Connect Avon Now envisioned a system of pedestrian paths and bike trails, and improved public transit. The system would have been built around plazas and parks, and new retail and commercial development. About half money would improve the transit system.. Many of those improvements would happen in the first phase, 2011-2016. Those trails would weave through [See AVON’S CAN, page 18]

Symposium to screen film about Armstrong, Leadville 100 tonight By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer

72 more victim remains found at Ground Zero

New York City officials say a renewed search this year of debris in and around the World Trade Center site has recovered 72 human remains. The sifting of more than 800 cubic yards of debris recovered from ground zero and underneath roads around the lower Manhattan site began in April and ended Friday. The greatest number of [See THE UPDATE, pages 10-11]

The property tax would have stayed at $15 per year on a $500,000 piece of property. It would replace two other property taxes that are expiring, one for Avon’s recreation center and another for the town’s roundabouts.

“Race Across the Sky,” an acclaimed documentary about the Leadville Trail 100 mountain bike race, will be screened tonight by the Vail Symposium in East Vail. The film follows race competitors Lance Armstrong and Dave Wiens from pre-race nerves to post-race elation. The Leadville Trail 100 (LT 100) runs through the heart of the Rocky Mountains and is one of the most grueling mountain bike races in the world. It starts and finishes in downtown Leadville at 10,200 ft. elevation with major climbs of more than 3,000 vertical feet and a total elevation change nearly 14,000 feet. The documentary offers an intimate look at what it takes not just physically, but emotionally and mentally to be able to compete in an endurance race such as LT100 Last year, there were 1,400 riders that participated, but most of the attention was paid to rivalry between six-time LT 100 champion Dave Weins and seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong. At 6:30 a.m. on a chilly August morning, a mob of mountain bike racers departed downtown Leadville. 6 hours, 28 minutes and 50 seconds later, one rider, drag[See RACE ACROSS THE SKY, page 18]

CMC tabs $8M for Edwards expansion Trimmed down 2010-11 budget raises fees Colorado Mountain College’s new budget includes $8 million to double the size of the Edwards campus. The college’s trustees yesterday approved a $65.5 million budget for 2010-11. The money is coming to Edwards despite a projected 50 percent drop in state funding, and a 50 percent drop in the college’s oil and gas revenue. To offset at least some of that, the college’s trustees raised tuition for next school year, $4 per credit hour for in-district students, $7 per credit hour for in-state students and $53 per credit hour for out-of-state students. CMC still charges less than most colleges, at $1,470 in tuition per year for full-time, in-district students.

Trustees are projecting that property values could fall as much as 30 percent. That could mean a corresponding drop in property tax revenues, if the trustees do not raise the rate at which the college charges property taxes. Next year’s CMC budget earmarks less money for facilities projects. Several large projects wrapped up this year. Besides the project in Edwards, CMC will start replacing several older buildings in Steamboat Springs with a single building. The Edwards project is scheduled for completion next summer.

Airport interchange idea once again riding Obama-go-round

I-70 project back for second round of TIGER grants By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Eagle County is bowling for ObamaBucks again with another swing at a federal grant for its airport interchange project, county officials said yesterday. The application is due in August, and lots of people are lining up with big ol’ baskets to catch big ol’ grants

if the Obamamobile rolls through for an election year swing. The last time around, the county asked for $65 million for its proposed airport interchange project. At the time, it was billed as the “last best chance” to get the project funded. This, then, would be the unanticipated but highly popular sequel, TIGER II. Tiger stands for Transportation

Investment Generating Economic Recovery. It does not have anything to do with the children’s verse, “Tiger tiger burning bright,” and how quickly these projects tend to burn through borrowed tax money. It’s not like that. The entire state got $10 million with the first round of TIGER grants. It all went to the Front [See I-70, page 18]

Vail Mtn cleanup largest yet Hundreds turn out to collect trash, lost items By John LaConte Vail Mountaineer Editor Yesterday’s Vail Mountain cleanup had the biggest turnout in the history of the event, attracting more than 240 non-employee volunteers. Groups combed the mountain runs, collecting garbage and lost items before rejoining at Eagle’s Nest to admire their work: a large dumpster filled with trash that would have otherwise littered the mountain. Every year volunteers find interesting, funny and valuable things, and this year was no exception. An “I heart NY” flask and a volleyball-sized Christmas tree ornament were among the more humorous items found this year. Valuable items included an entire snowboard, complete with bindings, and, of course, several people found cash. But for one lucky group, the money they discovered was worth a little more than the flimsy U.S. dollar. That’s right, they found Euros. But the best story of the day came from West Vail

Featuring Liken, 2nd episode of ‘Top Chef: DC’ airs tonight Local made it through last week’s cut without a problem By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer Local Vail chef Kelly Liken is back on TV tonight for the second episode of the Bravo! network’s “Top Chef: DC.” “Kelly’s Colorado Grass-Fed Steak was another standout, even if she was not the strongest in her group,” host Gail Simmons wrote after the first episode aired last week. “Her food was cooked with an expert hand, seasoned well, and reflected not just her origins, but also her cooking philosophy.” For this, the show’s seventh season, Liken competes against 16 other “cheftestants” (their word, not ours) in Washington D.C. for “the ultimate power play that will determine just who has the chops to become Top Chef,” says Bravo. This season, the show captures the many tastes of our nation’s capital and features guest appearances by some of the town’s biggest names like Buzz Aldrin, Nancy Pelosi, White House chef Sam Kass, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, Congressman Aaron Schock, Senator Mark Warner, CIA Director Leon Panetta and White House correspondent Savannah Guthrie. Some of the challenges the chefs take on this season include taking over the concession stands at Nationals stadium and going inside the CIA’s closely guarded headquarters to receive direction on a challenge from a NASA astronaut orbiting Earth. The 17 cheftestants will be whittled down week by week (Liken had no trouble making it past last week’s cut) as they compete to out cook the competition. The winning chef will receive $125,000, a feature in Food & Wine magazine, a showcase at the recently wrapped Annual Food & Wine Classic in Aspen and, of course, the title of “Top Chef.” In May, the owner and executive chef at Restaurant Kelly Liken in Vail Village also appeared on the Food Network’s Iron Chef America. Episode 2 of “Top Chef: DC” airs at 7 p.m. tonight on the Bravo! network. RIGHT: In this screen grab from, local chef and restaurateur Kelly Liken, one of the “cheftestants” on the network’s new season of “Top Chef: DC,” models the Top Chef jacket in anticipation of her appearance on the show, which began airing last week.

Locals mix it up at MMA bouts By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer If Kim Christodal hits like a girl, you’d better hope she doesn’t hit you. Christodal was one of four local fighters from Inyodo Martial Arts who made the trip to Denver to try their hand – and feet – at kickboxing. Technically, it’s called mixed martial arts, like the stuff you see on television when your kids aren’t in the room. It’s growing faster than the national debt. On the cover of today’s paper is a photo of Christodal’s left foot going upside the

right side of her opponent’s head. When she was done, about the only question was whether or not the word “upside” should be hyphenated, because her opponent had been hyphenated. Christodal was joined by Nick “The Stylist” Mahaffey, Roy “Leadville” Martinez and Sam Fernandez, who were part of a whirling dervish of fists and feet at last weekend’s Heavy Hitters Kickboxing and mixed martial arts tournament in Denver. “Kim won the crowd and kicked butt,” said Jason Field, who runs Inyodo Mar[See LOCALS, page 19]

Orgone at Agave, Avon

Los Angeles based band Orgone is many souls with a cosmic connection, a natural creative force and musicians who have played together for years. They are self schooled and continue to shape their musical voice as a solid unit of guys who hang, spin records and jam out their shared inspirations. With a rooted sense of funk, soul, afrobeat, deep rhythms and an intimate understanding of dj culture as well as each others’ individual talents, Orgone seamlessly slides through multiple styles and dynamic performances. The group continuously injects whatever they play with a heavy brand of raw, funk power. Coming from Bonnaroo via New Orleans Jazz fest to Avon, they shared the stage last winter with Ozomotli at Agave and made quite a few fans in the valley. The show starts at 9:30 p.m.

Stereo Assassins at Finnegan’s, Avon

When they first played together last year, they were Hustle’s Ben Koelker and Pete Haugh with Frogs Gone Fishin’s Andrew Portwood and Dave Donahue of Laughing Bones. With the addition of Frogs’ Trevor Jones on keyboard, they go by the name Stereo As-

sassins. Andrew Portwood of Frogs Gone Fishin’ says Stereo Assassins plays aerobic funk, covering James Brown, The Meters and funky takes on Phish and the Dead. “We blend rhythm and soul with jam and groove and keep you moving until you’re in a full body freak out,� says Portwood. “This is a great group of funky musicians, and we bring the party.� Show starts at 10 p.m. and is free.

Taylor Hilliard at The Club, Vail Village

Taylor Hilliard -- nephew of George Hilliard, who has been playing acoustic rock in Vail for years -- is taking the stage once again tonight. He plays acoustic southern rock – everything from country to alternative and classic rock. The whole thing started when Uncle George was playing one night at The Club this past winter. Young Taylor got up on stage and showed everybody that he could play, too. “I’ve always been around music. My dad and my uncle both play, so I got my first guitar when I was real little,� Hilliard said. “I’m a southern boy. I played a bunch down in Georgia at some of the local bars – made the move out here and I’m getting it started up again.� The show starts at 10 p.m.

Russian president to meet Twitter guys

The Center for Science in the Public Interest yesterday served McDonald’s with a letter expressing its intent to sue if toys are not removed from Happy Meals. The letter cited toys from the new “Shrek� movie and said toys attract children to McDonald’s restaurants, where they are then likely to eat food that is not good for them. “McDonald’s is the stranger in the playground handing out candy to children,� Stephen Gardner, litigation director for the advocacy group said in a statement. “McDonald’s use of toys undercuts parental authority and exploits young children’s developmental immaturity.� A McDonald’s spokesperson said toys are “just one part of a fun, family experience at McDonald’s.�

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev is in the United States after touching down in San Francisco for the start of a U.S. tour. The 44-year-old Kremlin chief met California first lady Maria Shriver and former Secretary of State George Shultz. They were scheduled to attend a reception along with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger last night at San Francisco’s Fairmont Hotel. Today, Medvedev plans to visit with the founders of Twitter, before heading to Silicon Valley to meet with other high-tech executives. He will also give a speech at Stanford University. A technophile, Medvedev wants to transform Russia from a raw materials supplier into a high-tech, intellectual oasis. After California, Medvedev will fly to Washington to meet with President Barack Obama. They will then go to Toronto for the G-8 and G-20 summits.

Obama: McChrystal used “poor judgement�

Value-added tax raised to 20 percent

President Obama yesterday said he wanted to make sure and talk to Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal directly before deciding whether or not to fire the top commander in Afghanistan. All this over a Rolling Stone article, where McChrystal and his aides were allegedly critical of “nearly every member of the president’s national security team,� according to the New York Times. The article is scheduled to come out on Friday. Among the highlights in the article is McCrystal asking the question “Who’s that?� when asked about Vice President Biden. A top adviser says “Biden,� and McCrystal replies “Did you say bite me?� McCrystal, in the Rolling Stone article, also says Obama looked “uncomfortable and intimidated� by the roomful of military brass. “I think it’s clear that the article in which he and his team appeared showed poor judgment,� Obama said after a cabinet meeting yesterday. “Whether or not General McChrystal remains at the helm of the Afghan war effort, Mr. Obama will try to use Wednesday’s meeting to urge his fractious Afghanistan staff to pull together,� the New York Times reported, citing Obama’s press secretary, Robert Gibbs.

The value-added tax rate in the U.K. has been raised to 20 percent from 17.5. Similar to a sales tax, value-added tax is a tax on the estimated market value added to a product or material at each stage of its manufacture or distribution, ultimately passed on to the consumer. “The years of debt and spending make this unavoidable,� British Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne, who is responsible for the increase, was quoted saying by British news sources. The value-added tax generates about 15 percent of total government revenue. Retailers say the increase could negatively affect consumer spending.

Kagan hearings may see Republican boycott

Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee, on Monday evening warned that Republicans may boycott the start of Elena Kagan’s Supreme Court hearings if senators do not get to review scores of documents from the solicitor general’s past, reports POLITICO. “I don’t feel like we’re prepared yet,� Sessions told POLITICO. “It’s becoming more clear that this is not an easy thing to get ready this quick.�

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------The report said Sessions alleged there was 1,600 withheld documents, which cover Kagan’s time as a senior White House aide under President Bill Clinton but were not released because of confidentiality concerns.

Madoff buddy out on bail

The former finance chief for jailed financier Bernard Madoff was released on $10 million bail Tuesday, months after he admitted his role in an epic fraud that cost thousands of investors billions of dollars and agreed to cooperate with investigators. Just a few hours after Frank DiPascali left U.S. District Court in Manhattan without speaking to reporters, prosecutors revealed they had filed civil papers to recoup $5 million from two longtime former back office Madoff employees who have never been charged criminally. DiPascali, 53, was freed according to the terms of a bail package that a judge had set in February. He pleaded guilty in August to helping with Madoff’s multi-decade Ponzi scheme until it collapsed in late 2008, when Madoff revealed to his sons that his private investment business was a fraud and they notified the FBI. DiPascali’s cooperation has delayed his sentencing on his guilty plea to securities fraud, money laundering and other charges that carry potential penalties of up to 125 years in prison. “I was loyal to him. I ended up being loyal to a terrible, terrible fault,” DiPascali said during the plea. DiPascali began working for Madoff in 1975, just after he finished high school. He has said he became aware of the fraud by the 1980s or early 1990s.

Off-shore drill ban decision to be appealed by White House

A federal judge struck down the Obama administration’s six-month ban on deepwater oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico as rash and heavy-handed yesterday, saying the government simply assumed that because one rig exploded, the others pose an imminent danger, too. The White House promised an immediate appeal. The Interior Department had imposed the moratorium last month in the wake of the BP disaster, halting approval of any new permits for deepwater projects and suspending drilling on 33 exploratory wells. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said President Barack Obama believes that until investigations can determine why the spill happened, continued deepwater drilling exposes workers and the environment to “a danger that the president does not believe we can afford.”

So when they got the money — generally about a few thousand dollars each so far — they spent it fast. “If they’re going to pay you a lump sum, like for a year, then bam, take the taxes out of the check,” said Pellegal, of Boothville, La. “But a little bit at a time, they shouldn’t.” Accountants have been trying to nail down the implications for thousands of taxpayers after President Barack Obama said BP would create a $20 billion disaster fund and provide another $100 million for oil workers who lose their jobs because of the six-month moratorium on deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. Tax experts said generally all income is taxable under federal law unless specific exemptions are approved by Congress or the Treasury Department — and neither has acted yet on oil spill damage claims. The IRS would not comment on whether exemptions would be made, citing a policy of not answering questions on specific tax issues. Adding to the confusion, Kenneth Feinberg, who was chosen by President Barack Obama and BP to oversee the Independent Claims Facility, said Friday it hasn’t been determined if the payouts will be considered taxable income.

BP payments to Gulf victims may be tax deductible

Citing a longtime Lehman Bros. tax expert, thestreet. com is reporting that BP likely will be able to deduct payments it has agreed to make to compensate people damaged by the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. In de[See THE UPDATE, page 12]

new order imposing a moratorium on deepwater drilling after a federal judge struck down the existing one. Salazar said in a statement Tuesday evening that the new order will contain additional information making clear why the six-month drilling pause was necessary in the wake of the Gulf oil spill. The judge in New Orleans who struck down the moratorium earlier in the day complained there wasn’t enough justification for it. Salazar pointed to indications of inadequate safety precautions by industry on deepwater wells. He said he would issue a new order in the coming days showing that a moratorium is needed. The White House also is appealing the judge’s ruling.

termining whether BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $20 billion escrow account to compensate victims of the spill is tax-deductible, BP first must establish that it is an â&#x20AC;&#x153;ordinary and necessaryâ&#x20AC;? expense it incurs as part of conducting its business, according to the report. It will clear that hurdle fairly easily, quotes Lehman Bros. tax expert Robert Willens saying. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a question, though, about whether a BP deduction could be disallowed on public policy grounds,â&#x20AC;? according to the report. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In short, it would likely take an act of Congress to keep BP from deducting its payments, and while that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be ruled out, given the mood of Congress toward BP, it would seem to be legally difficult, as it would likely be viewed as legislating ex post facto. Further good news for BP is that if the payment causes BP to post a net operating loss, the oil giant would likely be able to use the loss to offset profits from the past two years.

be too costly. Tax cuts enacted under former President George W. Bush are scheduled to expire at the end of the year, affecting taxpayers at every income level. President Barack Obama proposes to permanently extend them for individuals making less than $200,000 a year and families making less than $250,000â&#x20AC;&#x201D;at a cost of about $2.5 trillion over the next decade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As the House and Senate debate what to do with the expiring Bush tax cuts in the coming weeks, we need to have a serious discussion about their implications for our fiscal outlook, including whether we can afford to permanently extend them before we have a real plan for long-term deficit reduction,â&#x20AC;? said Hoyer, a Maryland Democrat. Republicans argue that many of the high earners who would face tax increases under Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan are small business owners struggling to stay afloat in a tough economy.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said yesterday that tax increases will eventually be necessary to address the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mounting debt, raising a difficult election-year issue as Democrats fight retain control of Congress. In the shorter term, Hoyer raised the possibility that Congress will only temporarily extend middle-class tax cuts set to expire at the end of the year. Hoyer suggested that making them permanent would

Not injured after nasty tumble Trying to switch directions while chasing a shot beneath the Royal Box at Wimbledon’s Centre Court on Tuesday, Rafael Nadal lost his footing and took a nasty-looking spill, flinging his racket in the air while he fell. The Spaniard was OK, even if he did land on his back behind the baseline and glanced overhead to make sure his equipment wasn’t going to nail him in the noggin. Nadal toweled off and, four games later, wrapped up a 6-2, 6-4, 6-4 victory over Japan’s Kei Nishikori in the first round at the All England Club. Nadal was not able to defend

his 2008 title at Wimbledon withdrawing last year because of painful tendinitis in his kneesNow he’s healthy, reinstated at No. 1 in the rankings, once again the reigning French Open champion—and back on what he called “probably the most beautiful and emblematic court in the world.” “I’m happy to be here again,” Nadal said after his first round victory. For all of Nadal’s success at the French Open—38-1 with five championships in six years—he considers his Wimbledon trophy his most significant accomplishment. Having to pull out of the grass-court Grand

Serena, Sharapova advance

Serena Williams started her Wimbledon defense off right with a straight-sets victory against Portugal’s Michelle Larcher de Brito. The 28-year-old Williams, who secured her 12th Grand Slam title at this year’s Australian Open, won 6-0, 6-4 in the opening match today on Centre Court. She defeated her 17-year- old opponent in 1 hour, 3 minutes. “She’s a good player,” Williams, also champion in

Slam tournament in 2009 was part of a tough season that also included his only loss at Roland Garros and, away from the court, his parents’ separation. “We had many problems last year, with the knees and many things. After Roland Garros, it was a difficult decision not playing here,” said Toni Nadal, Rafael’s uncle and coach. “When you are the (defending) champion, you want to at least come here to play. But that’s life.” Nadal is seeded second behind six-time Wimbledon champion Federer, who struggled in his first match Monday, coming back to win after dropping the opening two sets.

2002 and 2003, said at a news conference. “She doesn’t look it, but she definitely packs a punch. It was good for me because most people that do play nowadays hit really hard.” Maria Sharapova, a past Wimbledon winner coming off an injury, eliminated 127th-ranked Anastasia Pivovarova of Russia 6-1, 6-0 in only 54 minutes. Sharapova had right shoulder surgery in October 2008 and was sidelined for about 10 months, then was hampered by a right elbow injury this season.

WADA to oversee Tour de France drug testing The World Anti-Doping Agency will monitor drugtesting at next monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tour de France. The International Cycling Union signed the agreement Tuesday. WADA representatives will be able to observe all phases of the UCIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anti-doping controls, from the selection of riders to be tested to the handling of results. They will also have access to all related documents. The WADA observers will write a report on UCIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anti-doping activities after the Tour, which runs July 3-25. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I look forward to hearing their conclusions with ev-

ery confidence as the UCI works very strictly within the standards drawn up by WADA,â&#x20AC;? UCI president Pat McQuaid said in a statement. Cyclingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s governing body had requested the observers in October, hoping to increase the transparency of its anti-doping efforts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The presence of independent observers at major sporting events contributes to strengthen the protection provided to clean athletes and to enhance their confidence, as well as the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s confidence, in the doping control and results management processes,â&#x20AC;? WADA president John Fahey said.

Cyclist taken out of coma Cyclist Kim Kirchen of Luxembourg has been taken out of a medically controlled coma, four days after a heart attack. The 31-year-old Katusha rider complained of heart problems last Friday following the seventh stage of the Tour of Switzerland. He was taken to a hospital and put in a coma. His team said Tuesday that after he was removed

from the coma he immediately recognized his wife and father, but had no memory of what happened to him. He reportedly has no problems with his heart or lungs. He will remain in hospital as doctors try to find the cause of the heart attack. Kirchen had heart problems earlier this year. He had been selected to ride in the Tour de France, which begins next month.

Brajkovic, who beat twice Tour champion Alberto Contador in this monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warm-up race, will join seventimes winner Armstrong on the French roads in July. The squad, announced on the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website on Tuesday, will also feature Tour podium finishers Levi Leipheimer of United States and German Andreas Kloeden. Portuguese Sergio Paulinho, Kazakh Dimitri Muravyev, Ukraineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Yaroslav Popovych, American Chris Horner and Swiss Gregory Rast complete the line-up. The Tour de France starts in Rotterdam on July 3.

It was a course record. You might think winning the LT 100 would not be a major accomplishment for a seven-time Tour de France champion; however, it was only one year prior that Armstrong finished second to Wiens, a Gunnison local. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was nervous. I was shaking last night,â&#x20AC;? Armstrong said after the race. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Tour de France is three weeks. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no point getting nervous.â&#x20AC;? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much more that can go wrong at a race like the LT 100, he said. And it did. Armstrong got a flat tire in the final ten miles of the hundred-mile race. His first thought when the tire went flat was, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m terrible at changing flats. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s embarrassing. So, I said screw it, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ride it home.â&#x20AC;? Armstrong: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a special race Armstrong said one of the things that makes the LT 100 so special is the fifty-mile-out, fiftymile-back format. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I pass every guy out there at some point in the race, the guy in second and the guy in lastâ&#x20AC;Ś Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of camaraderie.â&#x20AC;? Armstrong said he was totally dead at the end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You got a guy, fifty pounds over weight, carrying five cameras running past you (as you approach the finish),â&#x20AC;? he said. Dave Wiens emphasized the significance of having Armstrong at the race. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having this guy

here, coming off the tour wins; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty special,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let him fool you, Lance can ride a mountain bike really well,â&#x20AC;? Wiens joked. When asked what his favorite part of the race was, Armstrong said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Finishingâ&#x20AC;Ś I was really looking forward to hammering the Snickers and Coke that were waiting for me.â&#x20AC;?

Throne was awarded a Nalgene bottle by Vail Mountain Environmental Manager Adam Bybliw for having one of the most interesting finds. Bybliw said he was thrilled with the turnout. “We’ve been doing this for years, and we keep having more and more volunteers and less and less garbage on the mountain,” he said. “It’s a really positive event for everyone.” RIGHT: Vail Mountain Environmental Manager Adam Bybliw poses for a photo next to a dumpster full with bag of trash collected on the mountain yesterday. Bybliw says yesterday’s annual cleanup had the largest volunteer turnout in the history of the event. John LaConte photo.

unfazed, more or less, Field said. Sam Fernandez earned that honor, along with Fight of the Night. About 60 friends and family were at ringside for the local fighters. “It matters much less whether you win or lose when you have that many people cheering that hard for you,” Field said. Field said he and coaches Bobby

Hermasillo and Bratzo Horrituimer are proud of everyone who competed. “Denver is a big-time area for mixed martial arts. Some of the top gyms in the country are there, and we were holding our own and competing with them,” Field said. “No one got hurt, and we’re happy and thankful for that.”
