USA Pro Challenge
For the next few days, Aspen is all about biking as the USA Pro Challenge kicks off at 1pm today with a circuit race. Teams from all over the world, including this year's Tour de France-winning Sky Cycling, will do two circuits through downtown Aspen before taking off for Snowmass. Grueling climbs on Power Plant Rd. and Owl Creek on the way to Snowmass will highlight the course. Then, tomorrow the road race begins in earnest with a start on Main Street as the teams take off over Independence Pass for Breckenridge. Live television coverage will be broadcast all week.
