I happened upon the Specialized Bikes Global Dealer/Press gathering at Copper Mountain where they are rolling out their 2014 bikes. They are going to have 5000 people at Copper over 10 days, including press, US dealers and international dealers.
As a proud owner of one Specialized bike and currently lusting after another, it was really fun nosing around. I took some pics and thought others might be interested in seeing them. No news here, unfortunately, all the bikes people are waiting for were hidden away until the roll out presentation the next day.

I haven't seen any US press yet, but here's a post on a chinese website with a bunch more pictures:
Tip for single guys: There was a yoga festival at Copper that wrapped up over the weekend just before Specialized started setting up. The yoga festival next year would be a really, really opportune time for some single guys to come to Copper for a mountain and/or road bike weekend. Seriously, you'd had to be there to believe it. Wow.
