Mar 16th @ 4:59 pm in News by Scott Staley

Congressman Scott Tipton is encouraging the Colorado National Monument to host part of a major bike race.  NBC 11 News reports that Tipton urged National Park Service officials to approve the Quiznos Pro Challenge bicycling race at the Monument next year. The Monument’s superintendent initially rejected the event, over concerns of  safety, too many people and the overall cost.  Tipton says race organizers are making sure the event wouldn’t negatively affect the monument.  He also  says organizers changed their plans to be more pleasing to the Park Service and as a result, organizers have resubmitted their proposal.
