The Colorado Classic cycling race comes back this year, with a twist. It is now a women’s event, touted as the only one of its kind “in the western hemisphere.” It's comprised of four stages, starting in Steamboat Springs, onto Avon, Golden and ending in Denver. Cyclist Erica Clevenger, of Golden, will compete in the 220 mile race. She juggles the sport and her studies at the Colorado School of Mines. She joined us to talk about the race and its message of empowerment.
