Reijnen edges Howes in USA Pro Challenge opener
The Denver Post
ASPEN — On the eve of the USA Pro Challenge, Golden High School grad Alex Howes said his role for Garmin-Sharp this week would be to support team leader Tom Danielson but added that he had “earmarked” a couple stages he thought he could win. One, he said, was Monday’s opening stage.
Howes nearly pulled it off, finishing second in a furious finishing duel in the Aspen-Snowmass circuit by two seconds behind Kiel Reijnen of UnitedHealthCare.
It would be really hard to spark a wildfire anywhere near Vail Mountain or Beaver Creek right now. Still, unattended campfires will always draw attention.
