Ask, and very occasionally you receive.
You might remember that though I enjoyed last year's premier USA Pro Cycling Challenge, I also had my criticisms. Other than the convoluted and impossible-to-remember name, my biggest beef was with the course, which had it's ups and downs but really didn't deliver much drama beyond the Stage 3 halfway point. At the time, I implored race officials for a more exciting course in 2012, ideally one with a mountaintop finish.
