2011 Outdoor Demo - day 1

It is Interbike time again in Las Vegas and today was the first day of Outdoor Demo in Boulder City, NV. We were there to bring you images from this annual pilgrimage.

Today we noticed cycling shoes from Vittoria, the tuner from Fizik, a Giro helmet detail, Bontrager podium shoes, Rudy Project helmet colors, Melane McQuaid, a cool Felt ride, Tom Kattus from Campagnolo and Chris Clinton from Bontrager. Plus all kinds of action on the road and in the booths, we even came across some off road carnage.

Well, the do not enter sign is for cars and non industry folks.

A beautiful and warm day in Boulder City, Nevada.

Campagnolo's Tom Kattus got an early gift of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, befitting for someone working for an Italian brand.

Randy Price from the Slippery Pig shop must have really tested out this bike.

Andreas Heuser from Ultra BikeX in Florida is about to test out an Argon18 E-118.

With these bright neon Rudy Project helmets you should be quite visible to other traffic participants and your family at events.

Melanie McQuaid hung around after 70.3 Worlds to work Interbike for sponsor Specialized.

The Tuner for the Kurve saddle from Fizik let's you pick either a harder or softer feel of the saddle.

Vittoria has quite a selection of these old school cycling shoes.

It would be tough to not impress folks at a coffee shop when showing up on this cool Felt ride.

Not everybody at Outdoor Demo was eager and alert.

Busy action in the Chris King booth.

The crankbrothers VIP lounge is an oasis in the desert.

Busy traffic in Boulder City near Bootleg Canyon.

Here you can see a bit more clearly how the Giro Selector allows you to tune the tail section.

Chris Clinton of Bontrager worked the Margarita Man machine like a pro.

Clinton's Bontrager podium shoes might be the coolest footwear in Boulder City.

Most folks who ride road bikes finish their outing with a nice steady climb.

Time to go back to hotels and motels after a fun day of Outdoor Demo in Boulder City.
