Gee, I should have read all of the negative comments first before I wrote 'my' first comment. I haven't heard or read this much complaining and whining in quite some time and it's ALL about X amount of dollars that were lost for several hours of inconvenience.
If that piddling amount of money that you all supposedly lost is going to hurt you that badly then you may be in the wrong business my friends.
I think the Town did a marvelous job of handling the logistics of the race event for the first time out on something of this magnitude.
They did their best and that speaks well to me.

The roads were NOT patched, all they did was go around and mark potholes and cracks with paint so the riders would see them in advance, the state did paint the lines in the road ahead, but they do that every year bike race or not, and do you have a business that lost thousands of dollars because of road closures that lasted for closer to 5 or 6 hours, not just a couple of hours, get a clue Richard.

George W. Bush who came to town, not George H. W. Bush, and they didn't shut down all incoming roads and all roads in town either. Facts are helpful when making a statement.

is Estes Park. The home of (my opinion only but is fact based) incompetent town officials and school boards who drive their own agendas without true (not just show) stakeholder input, embezzlement and loyalty to ones own self, manipulation of rules and laws and regimes that tear down all community trust is the norm. If a big bull elk, doe, cow or stag are not poached or shot with arrows they should be on the next school board and mayor/town trustee ballots. They are efficient, consistent, reliable, predictable, can get along with others in the herd (all that antler jousting is just sport) and people (who are not stupid enough to roust them during the rut) and they are the true money makers.
