In a matter of weeks, the USA Pro Cycling Challenge comes to Colorado, with its Stage 4 Finish in Beaver Creek, and we’re offering you the unique challenge to experience the course for yourself!
Scout the Stage offers you the chance to ride a part of the Stage 4 course on Thursday, Aug. 23, just prior to the pros who will ride the same route a few hours later. Cyclists who start in Leadville will ride the 40-mile course, tackling the UPC King of the Mountain climb up and over Battle Mountain before descending into Minturn, where hoards of fans are expected as the route continues up to Beaver Creek. The Minturn start provides an 11-mile course and all 400 riders will have the special privilege of powering past thousands of race fans who will be lined up alongside the course to cheer on the pros.
Scout the Stage Route Options:
Leadville 40-mile course: 10 a.m. start. Estimated finish between 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. depending on ability.
Minturn 11-mile course: 11 a.m. start time. Estimated finish between 11:30- 2 p.m. depending on ability.
Rules: The Scout the Stage ride will be a mass start ride at official sprint lines in Leadville and Minturn with a neutral escort out of both start towns. After the neutral start the ride will revert to a rules of the road ride on open roads until the finish line in Beaver Creek. The last 300 meters of the ride will take place on a fully closed course.
$100; space is limited to 400 riders.
All participants will receive a limited edition Scout the Stage jersey and a gift bag.
