Aspen Square Daily News
It was late August, as racers in the USA Pro Cycling Challenge came fast into Aspen for the finish of the Queen Stage of the USPCC, 128 riders racing 131 miles over two high mountain passes from Gunnison to Aspen. As the bike racers came over Indepencence Pass, they were cheered on by thousands of race fans up on the summit, at over 12,000 feet. Crowds in town were even bigger, welcoming the riders to the finish on Main Street in front of the Court House. It was an exciting, fun and action-filled event for Aspen, and a good time was had by all! We can't wait until next year!
