A lot's changed with the USA Pro Challenge bike race since it was announced in August 2010. For one thing, it was initially called the Quiznos Pro Challenge.

Nonetheless, the 2014 version of the USA Pro Challenge, beginning today and running through August 24, looks to be the biggest and best race in the series thus far.

Aurora theater shooting: Second anniversary to be remembered with beer festival, other events

Alex Teves at the Copper Kettle Brewing Company.
When Kristen Kozik, who owns the Copper Kettle Brewing Company with her husband, first heard about the horrific shooting at the Aurora Century 16 theater on July 20, 2012, she never imagined she'd know someone involved. It wasn't until the authorities released a list of the twelve people killed that she realized that one of the brewery's regular customers, 24-year-old Alex Teves, was among those who had died.

"As soon as we found out, we wanted to do something for his family," Kozik says. It's a tradition they've kept up -- and this year, on the second anniversary of the shooting, Copper Kettle will host "A Night to Remember," a beer festival in Alex's honor.
