Subaru-Trek rider Heather Irmiger, the 2009 world single speed champion, was calling from Boulder. She wanted to race against the pro men riders in Bohlmann's Ascent Cycling series opener at Palmer Park on Sunday, and she also promised to drag along her husband, 10-time national champion Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski. "That was a call I didn't expect to get," Bohlmann said. "Of course, I told her she could race against the men." Read the story here...

RESULTS Ascent Cycling Series Race No. 1
Ascent Cycling Series Race No. 2, June 1, Bear Creek Terrace
ProCycling rider J.J. Clark and Bandwagon's Doug Johnson exchanged the lead for the better part of an hour on Wednesday in the second race of the Ascent Cycling Series at Bear Creek Terrace.
On the final lap, Clark, 39, pulled ahead and motored to the finish line to take the win.
Johnson, who pedaled the better part of 64 miles with a broken pedal in last weekend's Growler race in Gunnison, looked to beat Clark in a final sprint, but sat up before the finish line.
"I just didn't have the legs," said Johnson.
Cam Chambers, riding a singlespeed, was on form and claimed third place.
