Cycling in the Colorado Rockies is proving to be very popular this year with the USA PRO CYCLE TOUR visiting Breckenridge. Stage five Finish line in main down town Breckenridge!
Stage 5: Steamboat Springs to Breckenridge (August 27)
The celebration in Steamboat moves to Werner Mountain, where the cyclists will take off under the watchful eye of Steamboat’s primary ski hill. This will be another opportunistic stage with ample opportunities for breakaways and aggressive racing, but this time with a true mountain pass. The double-summit Rabbit Ears Pass will host a King of the Mountain line and ample viewing opportunities. A sprint line in Kremmling will then lead to more breakways alongside the scenic Green Mountain Reservoir and fights for the finish line in Breckenridge, ending 109 miles of racing in what may prove to be the fastest road race finish during the seven day tour. After winding through Dillon, Keystone and Gold Hill, the cyclists will enter Breckenridge and ride to the finish line downtown.
Biking isn’t the only outdoor activity in Breckenridge, hiking, skiing, weddings, and a variety of festivals visit the rocky mountains every year.
