The Boulder-based Garmin Cervelo bike racing team finished better than expected in this year's Tour de France. They took first place in the team category, and one member, Colorado's Tom Danielson, finished ninth -- the highest-ranked US rider in the tour. Now the team is getting ready for the USA Pro Cycling Challenge in August, on a course that will take riders high into the Colorado mountains.  Colorado Public Radio's Mike Lamp talks with Joe Lindsey, contributing writer for Bicycling magazine.
