It was announced yesterday that the 2013 US Pro Challenge will stop in both Vail and Beaver Creek. Two years ago Vail hosted a time trial and last summer Beaver Creek hosted a stage finish in Beaver Creek Village. I was in Beaver Creek for the finish of that stage and it was amazing how many people were in the Village. The photo was from last summer’s race. I’m sure this summer will be just as exciting.
Beaver Creek will host the finish of Stage 4 on Thursday, August 22. The racers start in Steamboat Spring.
The following day, Friday, August 23, Vail will host the time trial. That race course was lined with spectators the last time the time trial was in Vail.
The cool thing is that the racers will be in Beaver Creek and Vail on Thursday and Friday, making for a great long weekend for visitors. I’m guessing there will be plenty of events scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. Plan your trip now and come see the races!
