USA Pro Challenge unveils compact, familiar footprint for 2013

LEG LUBE: USA Pro Challenge organizers unveiled a compact, familiar route on Wednesday for the race’s third edition and 2012 winner Christian Vande Velde(Garmin-Sharp) confirmed that he would be back in 2013. The 2013 Pro Challenge will kick off in the familiar surrounds of Aspen, Colorado, with a circuit race between the mountain town and nearby Snowmass. The 2011 Aspen Women’s Challenge utilized a hilly Snowmass circuit in 2011 in a stage won by Kristin Armstrong; it is unknown at this point how closely the stage 1 circuit will resemble that route.

The only new cities to host a stage start or finish are the Northern Colorado communities of Loveland and Fort Collins, which will see the penultimate stage play out over what is expected to be a mountainous route finishing near the downtown of the latter.
