“Known for lung-searing altitudes and steep climbs through the Colorado Rockies, the Pro Cycle Challenge is the largest spectator event in the history of the state.”
Osprey Packs will be returning to the Pro Cycle tour to take part in the action-packed week when the largest names in the world of road cycling will compete in some of the most breathtaking stretches of road in Colorado. Of course, the stages in previous years proved to be challenging but 2015 follows this trend with the tour starting in Steamboat Springs before traveling to new host communities Arapahoe Basin and Copper Mountain, as well as an individual time-trail course in Breckenridge.
What else is new for the 2015 Pro Cycle Challenge? This year marks the inaugural Women’s USA Pro Challenge bringing back international level women’s stage racing in Colorado for the first time since the Coors Classic in the 1980s!
The USA Pro Cycle Challenge is arguably the largest spectator cycling event in the nation and that’s not only because of the race itself. This event provides each host city with an excuse to not only celebrate the racers and sport of cycling, but to put on unique community events such as concerts, family activities, demos, trail running and biking competitions and while spreading the love to fans with a variety of freebies from participating vendors and tour sponsors.
