Interesting Facts About the USA Pro Challenge:
Coming towards the end of a long season, cycling fans might not have expected the second edition of the USA Pro Challenge to turn into the hotly contested Denver Event that it became in 2012. The principal contenders – Leipheimer, van Garderen, Nibali, Danielson, Sutherland, and Vande Velde, had already seen plenty of action out on the road and there was no telling what anyone would have left in the tank once they arrived at the high altitudes of the Centennial State. If you want to see more competition like the heated showdowns that took place in previous year’s events, make sure you head to the 2014 USA Pro Challenge for what promises to be another one of the year’s most exciting Activities in Denver and Colorado.
