Star Studded Lineup

The USA Pro Cycling Challenge has announced the provisionary team rosters for the new Colorado stage race starting in less than 2 weeks. They had previously announced that the top 3 from this year’s Tour de France would be racing along with some other big names. The list released today shows many top bike racers will be here.

Included will be 2 Olympic medalists from the Beijing Games, 5 former world champions, 12 Tour de France stage winners and 5 that have been on the final podium at the Tour de France. One of our local pros, Danny Pate, will be riding for HTC-Highroad. I’ve known him for a long time and used to mountain bike race with his dad.

“This is no doubt one of the best fields ever assembled on American soil,” said Danielson, a Boulder, Colo. resident considered by many as one of the front runners to win the inaugural USA Pro Cycling Challenge. “It’s a diverse blend of top professional teams from various continents and the altitude adds an element of unpredictability. No doubt, it is a special field that will put on a great showing.”
