KUSA – This summer the USA Pro Cycling Challenge returns. It’s the toughest race on American soil from August 20-26.
The world’s best riders will spin up treacherous terrain and take in breathtaking altitudes.
9NEWS is a proud sponsor of the event and once again Gregg Moss be covering all 518 miles through the Majestic Rockies.
Think you’re good enough to ride in the USA Pro Cycling Challenge?There’s a way you can test the terrain and your skills on the same course- on the same day as the pros.
Chris Carmichael, Lance Armstrong’s former coach and owner of Carmichael Training Systems in Colorado Springs is hosting a Bike Fantasy Camp.
Through an exclusive partnership between CTS and the USA Pro Challenge, a privileged few amateur riders will be selected for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ride every stage of the 2012 USA Pro Challenge as a team, just hours before the professionals. These lucky amateurs will eat, sleep and live like professional cyclists for all seven days of the race. Carmichael will lead the selection process and ride with the team during the event.
“With the altitude and the length of the climbs in Colorado, this promises to be the hardest Race Experience to date,” commented Carmichael. “The USA Pro Cycling Challenge has been instrumental in helping us create a truly unique experience for devoted amateur cyclists. It’s an insider’s view of what it’s like to live and work as a professional cyclist.”
“We were so impressed by the number of people that came out to watch the inaugural USA Pro Cycling Challenge that we wanted to create even more experiences for our devoted fans in 2012,” said Shawn Hunter, CEO of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge. “The CTS USA Pro Challenge Race Experience gives amateur cyclists the unique opportunity to see first-hand what the professional riders go through for their love of the sport.”
Included with the CTS USA Pro Challenge Race Experience is access to the VIP tent in each finish city, accommodations, meals, amenities and post-race massages, just like the pros. The cost of this exclusive race experience is $10,500 and applications are currently being accepted from riders who believe they can successfully complete this challenge. Interested
