USA Pro Cycling Challenge

17 Aug


Reminiscent of the legendary Coors Classic races held in the 1980’s (I have a t-shirt from the 1987 race – the fact that I’m proud of that tells you how much of a bike geek I truly am) the inaugural USA Pro Cycling Challenge kicks off next week.

The race begins Monday, August 22 with a Prologue in Colorado Springs followed by six stages of non-stop climbs and descents finishing in Denver on Sunday, August 28.

The best of this year’s Tour de France will be on hand; winner Cadel Evans, along with second and third place finishers, Andy and Frank Schleck, as well as American favorites Levi Leipheimer, George Hincapie and Christian Vande Velde.

Versus/NBC will have daily coverage of the race, our buddies Phil Liggett, Paul Sherwen and Bob Roll will provide the commentary.

Should be a very competitive and exciting race!
