U.S. Pro Cycling Challenge Hits Steamboat

Thursday, August 25, 2011

The U.S. Pro Cycling Challenge is in Colorado! Today they are biking over Independence Pass near Aspen and tomorrow they bike from Avon (near Vail) to Steamboat Spring for Stage 5 of the bike race. The bikers, which include the top 3 finishers from the Tour de France, are expected to arrive in downtown Steamboat Springs between 3:30-4:00 tomorrow afternoon.

Steamboat Springs is the only town with an overnight stop, so the bikers will stay in town for the night and depart Saturday morning. You can watch them leave from the Meadows parking lot, or stake your claim on Rabbit Ears Pass (HWY 40) to see them climb up this pass on their way to Breckenridge for Stage 6. The last day is Sunday, when they bike from Golden to Denver.
