Vincenzo Nibali, Tejay Van Garderen, Cadel Evans, Andy Schleck challenge defending champ Levi Leipheimer in USA Pro Challenge in Colorado

UPDATE: Get updates for each stage and final results right here.

The field just keeps getting stronger for the upcoming USA Pro Challenge in Colorado (Aug. 20-26).

How good is the field? Organizers note that the race will include six of the top 13 finishers from this year’s Tour de France: Vincenzo Nibali (3rd), Tejay Van Garderen (5th), Cadel Evans (7th and last year’s Tour champion), Janez Brajkovic (9th), Andreas Kloden (11R) and Chris Horner (13).

Other fine riders are coming as well. Taylor Phinney, who finished fourth in the road race and time trial at the Olympics, and 2010 Tour de France champion Andy Schleck also will compete. This will be the popular Schleck’s first race since a pelvis injury he suffered in June. As previously reported, Levi Leipheimer will return to defend his title.

Find out more about who’s racing and what teams are coming.

This year’s race will start Aug. 20 in Durango and finish with a time trial on Aug. 26 in Denver. See the entire route.  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.
