For one week each year, cyclists and the many fans of the sport turn their attention to Colorado for the USA Pro Cycling Challenge. Started in 2011, this event has brought national and worldwide attention to our state and the communities that serve as host to this international competition.
Welcome to Stage 6 of the 2013 USA Pro Cycling Challenge; Loveland to Fort Collins, on August 24, 2013. A group of Northern Colorado business, community and cycling leaders have come together to bring this event to our part of the state. While the economic impact and associated spending is of benefit to us, more important is the positive media exposure on a statewide, national and international scale.
However, this event does not come to communities for free. The costs associated with local production of this are large, and it takes a true community effort to pull it off. But it will be worth it. The Local Organizing Committee continues to work together to make this event successful for Fort Collins, Loveland, Estes Park, Windsor and other cities, sending a strong message to the rest of the state and the nation that we are a great visitor destination as well as a quality place to do business.
