It was another successful turnout for Team Roaring Fork in July 22-24’s Courage Classic cycling ride from Leadville to Copper Mountain.Thirty-eight bikers suited up for the local team, making it the eighth largest team in the ride. Team Roaring Fork also raised about $15,000 for The Children’s Hospital in Denver. The team, which has participated in the ride for the past few years, increased its members and raised more money than last year.”Each year we get to know more and more people,” said Roaring Fork team member Pat Bohman. “All the other teams are starting to recognize us as possible contenders for being big fundraisers. It’s really great to see all our riders from the Western Slope support The Children’s Hospital.”Bohman’s daughter Kelsey, a leukemia survivor who hit the five-year cancer-free mark earlier this year, rode with Roaring Fork again this year. Pat said the 17-year-old has improved her pedaling skills.”The weather was perfect. We all had a great time,” Pat said. “Best of all we came home tired because it was really hard to keep up with Kelsey this year.”
