USA Pro Cycling Challenge Prologue Start

It’s great that the USA Pro Cycling Challenge has been showing live streaming of the races with the ShackTracker. They don’t always show the start of the stage but they’ve been showing a good amount live. The ads can be annoying when they cover up the racing at key times but if you use full screen mode, the ads are hidden and you just hear the ad audio.

Sometimes I can’t tell who a rider is but can see their number. Here’s a list of USA Pro Cycling Challenge rider numbers sorted by number so it’s easy to find a rider.

USA Pro Cycling Challenge Prologue

August 22nd, 2011

Ridge Road in Garden of the Gods

This week is big for cycling in the US and especially as the USA Pro Cycling Challenge kicks off today at 1:15 PM MDT with the prologue. The prologue course passes a few blocks from where I grew up.

Since this is a time trial, most of the riders start 1 minute a part but the last few will be 2 minutes apart. If a rider does manager to catch the rider in front of him, he’s not allowed to draft and must move to the other side of the road and make a fairly quick pass. The start times of the racers is here.

The course is 5.18 miles and overall is slightly downhill so it should be very fast. There is a slight climb in the Garden of the Gods before the screaming descent down Ridge Road.

At the bottom of Ridge Road is a 90 degree left hand turn followed by the road continue to curve to the left. Take the turn too slow and riders will lose valuable time. Take it too fast and they’ll lose skin.

Here are a few more photos of Ridge Road and the turn at the bottom.

Below is a video of the entire prologue course at fast forward speed.

Movie: Pedal-Driven

Wrap up a month of cycling fun with Pedal-Driven, a documentary that goes behind both sides of a confrontation – riding with the free riders and chasing them down with the rangers – in an exploration of issues increasingly important to all Americans. With an ever-increasing population and a finite supply of unspoiled wild lands, the sense of urgency around protecting and preserving these national treasures only grows. Pedal-Driven will examine the shared philosophies of stewardship and sustainability from both sides and, ultimately, offer examples of the ways in which opposing factions can find common ground in defense of our common grounds. The movie will begin at 7 p.m. at the Stargazers Theatre. Tickets for this event start at $9 in advance online and $12 at the door the night of the show.

Thursday Aug. 25

Movie: Bicycle Dreams

Call them seekers, madmen or angels hell-bent on riding across America. This documentary follows voyagers in the 2006 Race Across America (RAAM) as they discover what is truly at stake, praying for the deliverance only the finish line can bring. By journey’s end, some are saved, others are lost, but all learn that the fuel that takes a soul toward its own true destiny is desire. The movie will begin at 7 PM. at the Stargazers Theatre. Tickets for this event start at $10 in advance and $15 at the door the night of the show. You can read my Bicycle Dreams review here.

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.”
