This fast, flat .93 mile course is centered in the heart of the action in Old Town, Fort Collins on the same day as the USA Men’s Pro Challenge Stage 6, also ending in Fort Collins. With a major $9,000 prize purse, primes, sprinter points, and a most-aggressive rider jersey, you can expect incredible action among some of the highest-level women professionals in the U.S.! With that, due to sponsorship constraints due to the USA Pro Challenge, we are seeking additional sponsorship to make this a true celebration of ladies on bikes!
