GUNNISON, Colo. (Sept. 9, 2019) – Western Colorado University is excited to announce the return of the BLISTER Speaker Series and welcome Claudio Caluori to campus on Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. in the UC Theater.

Caluori is known throughout the bike world and has a unique perspective as a former World Cup Down Hill racer, former team manager of SCOTT bikes and UCI Mountain Bike World Cup Down Hill announcer. He is also the founder of Velosolutions – a global leader in building pump tracks, bike parks and trails.
