"Excuse me sir—sir? I’m going to have to photograph your turkey leg over there by Porta Potties. Thank you."—Emiliano Granado. "I don't care about the race. I'm here for the Turkey Leg. It’s (the Turkey Leg) phenomenal. It cost nine dollars but it’s worth it. I'm not really sure what else is going on here, like I said, I don't really care about the race at all, I’m laser-focused on getting and eating a phenomenal, nine dollar Turkey Leg.”- Alex Warfield, (non)-spectator to the 2013 USA Pro Challenge.
This Course Offical had a silver, metal whistle. She used her whistle wantonly, recklessly and without regard for, or appreciation regarding the ear health of, the hundreds of spectators immediately proximal to her position on corner #5 of the USA Pro Challenge Criterium Course.

"I've already been given clearance by my coach to take at least three days off. I’m going to do mostly nothing, but I might do some core work if I’m feeling fat from not doing anything. That happens sometimes. I’ve got Tour of Alberta in just over a week. I heard that the weather up there can be a little sketchy. There’s been major flooding in the last couple of months so they’ve changed some of the courses. We knew Colorado was going to be mostly training for me. My notes were to support the team however I could. Basically, I’m a C-level guy which we know for a fact now, but Alberta will be really good, because I’ll be a key part of the lead-out efforts for our sprinters."—Tom Soladay, USA Pro Challenge Lantern Rouge

“Before Colorado he was flustered and ready to quit because he had never done anything with his career. Now he’s done something. This is the pinnacle of his career so far. It’s a hard lifestyle but I want him to be happy. He’s gone 1/2 to 1/3 of the year. I don't know what’s going to happen next year. I want him to keep going but if he has to fight for a job, he probably won't do that.”—Nora Olson Cooke
