USA Pro Challenge

Known for lung-searing altitudes and intense climbs through the Colorado Rockies, the race is the largest spectator event in the history of the state. The 2014 USA Pro Challenge saw Tejay van Garderen of BMC Racing Team take the overall win for the second year in a row in Denver.

The 2015 USA Pro Challenge (UPC) takes place August 17-23. The UPC zooms through eight official host cities and, as with the previous four years, the finish line is in downtown Denver on August 23. Beginning in Steamboat Springs, the final stage will travel through Golden and conclude with three thrilling laps around the Colorado State Capitol. A free festival with an awards ceremony and food trucks will follow in Civic Center Park. 

NOTE: The race will include several downtown street closures and parking restrictions. 

On the morning of August 23, join the Lifeblood 5k community by running/walking the inspiring 5K course in downtown Denver. In collaboration with the USA Pro Challenge, the Lifeblood 5K raises money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and will begin the walk/run outside Civic Center Park.

Race participants will travel through the city before completing the 5K, crossing the exclusive Stage 7 finish line of the USA Pro Challenge. Post race, runners will enjoy an after party near Seal Pond in Civic Center Park to include beverages and an unparalleled view of the final stage of the 2015 USA Pro Challenge.

DENVER: A Cycling Paradise

Denver boasts 850 miles of paved, off-road trails that bikers enjoy all summer long. You don't even need to bring your bike. Denver B-cycle, the city's pioneering bike share program, offers an easy way to get around on two wheels. Purchase a daily pass for $9 at any of the 84 B-cycle stations located throughout the city, near museums, attractions and hotels. Once a pass is purchased, you can pick up one of the 800 B-cycles from any station and drop it off at any other station. All rides of 30 minutes or less are free and rides up to one hour are only a dollar, with prices going up from there. Users can also sign up for 30-day ($15) or annual passes ($90) online.

What To Do While You're Here

Denver is the perfect home base for your USA Pro Challenge experience, blending urban sophistication with outdoor adventure.

Catch a concert under the stars at the legendary Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre, a truly one-of-a-kind venue.

Go on a shopping spree in the Cherry Creek Shopping District, home to your favorite name-brand stores and unique boutiques.

Head to Coors Field, Denver’s downtown ballpark, to see the Colorado Rockies, Denver's professional baseball team.

Grab a pint of The Mile High City’s thriving beer scene at dozens of craft breweries.

And just a short drive away, Denver’s big backyard – the Rocky Mountain Front Range – delivers natural beauty, outdoor adventure, old west history, and one of National Geographic’s top places in the world to visit, Rocky Mountain National Park.
