Cycling fan or not, you may have heard that the USA Pro Challenge is making an appearance in Basalt, Colorado. On Tuesday, August 19th, the riders will be coming through town on Two Rivers Road.
Referred to as “America’s Race,” the USA Pro Challenge will take place August 18-24, 2014. For seven consecutive days, the world’s top athletes race through the majestic Colorado Rockies, reaching higher altitudes than they’ve ever had to endure. One of the largest cycling events in U.S. history and the largest spectator event in the history of the state, the USA Pro Challenge features a challenging course. The fourth annual race will spotlight the best of the best in professional cycling and some of America’s most beautiful scenery.
Last years’ winner and Aspen resident, Tejay van Garderen, will again be riding for team BMC in this years’ Pro Challenge.
