Crested Butte and Gunnison Part of the Quizno’s Pro Cycling Race in 2011

The Quiznos Pro Challenge officially announced the stages  for their inaugural 2011 pro bike race today. The first big time pro cycling race to grace Colorado in a long time will run next summer from August 22-28, 2011. The event will feature seven stage races. And, two of those stages will feature Crested Butte and Gunnison! This is tremendous news for the State of Colorado and specifically our valley!
Stage Two will feature a hill top finish in Crested Butte. Ouch. Thin air punishment for the sport’s best conditioned athletes. Looking forward to spectating.

Here are the stages:
