USA Pro Cycling announces an exciting Colorado route for second edition in August

Levi Leipheimer won the inaugural USA Pro Challenge

UPDATE: Race organizers, aiming to correct a big gap in last year’s TV coverage when viewers were left in the dark, have created a plan to ensure coverage of the thrilling downhill on Independendence Pass into Aspen. Read how.

Last year’s inaugural USA Pro Cycling Challenge was a huge success, with more than a million people coming out to attend the return of professional bicycling to Colorado.

The week-long stage race was a thriller, with breathtaking (literally) climbs and multiple leaders. When all was said and done, Levi Leipheimer won the closely-contested race over Christian VandeVelde and Tejay van Garderen. Other superstars like Tour de France champ Cadel Evans , Andy Schleck (and brother Frank) also came to Colorado.

So it’s no surprise that excitement is high for the second edition of the race in August. Organizers previously released the name of host cities, and now they’ve released the actual routes, which includes multiple mountain-top finishes as well as a time trial on the final day. See the routes.
