From the October 17th Denver Post:
"For now, the race’s name is a placeholder on the UCI calendar. In 2005, Andy Bohlmann registered the trade name “Tour of Colorado” to his Colorado Springs company Sand Creek Sports, Inc. Bohlmann, the former technical director of the U.S. Cycling Federation (what is now USA Cycling), confirmed he has had conversations with the investment group behind the event about selling or leasing the name and its intellectual property. From 2008-2012, the “Tour of Colorado” was a series of races in Colorado that awarded jerseys to overall winners based on their performance in the events.
“We really need a bicycle race in Colorado, with our name, our logo and our flag,” Bohlmann said. “I’m closing out my bike racing career, and I would love to have this as my last thing with bicycle racing.”
