The USA Pro Challenge makes its way to Colorado Springs today and will be close to home for the rest of the weekend: Stage 6 is tomorrow with a route from Golden to Boulder (current overall tour leader Tejay van Garderen is a Boulder transplant) and the race concludes, spectacularly, on Sunday with a time trials finish right here in Denver. "It's a huge honor for me to be in the Exergy Leader Jersey in my home state," van Garderen said yesterday in Beaver Creek. "I've lived here a long time now, and this is definitely home for me. I love being here, racing here and seeing the crowd."
