USA Pro Cycling Challenge

I’ve been watching the USA Pro Cycling Challenge all week, and I have to say, what an amazing event that was. Stellar performances from all the participants, but especially big kudos to the top 5 in GC – all Americans! Great all around performance by Levi Leipheimer. Great stage win into Aspen by George Hincapie. Amazing performance by 22 year old Tejay Van Garderen. Mind-blowing sprint victories by Elia Viviani. Beautiful and leg-breaking routes through Colorado. Welcome back to big-time bike racing!

Totally got me stoked for the ride in October, and cannot wait for next year’s edition. Congrats to all in Colorado for bringing another world-class bicycle race to the United States.
