Fort Collins welcomes USA Pro cycling Challenge

Fort Collins will welcome the third annual USA Pro Challenge when the competitors cross the finish line of the race’s sixth stage in Old Town on Saturday.

The week-long competition kicked off in Aspen on Monday, and will continue into its final stage in Denver on Sunday. The cyclists have traveled across the state, pedaling through Breckenridge, Steamboat Springs, Beaver Creek, and Vail going into Saturday’s start at the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland.

The estimated arrival time at the finish line, which will be located at the intersection of College Avenue and Mountain Street, is set for 4:15 p.m. The sixth leg includes a 115.2 mile ride that features a total climb of 11,855-foot climb across the route which will lead the cyclists into Estes Park before traveling the front range of Horsetooth Reservoir.

For most competitors in the challenge, it will be their last chance to set the position they wish to finish the race, as Sunday’s final leg is considered to be a sprint challenge in which it is difficult for riders to gain ground.

Event festivities begin at the finish line at noon, and will offer kids rides and a stunt show prior to the arrival of the cyclists. Spectators will be able to watch the event as the route travels in on Olive Street from Overland Trail, before wrapping back around for the homestretch on Mountain.
