2014 Stage 2 Finish
The USA Pro Cycling Challenge will be rolling through the towns of Crested Butte and Mt. Crested Butte on Tuesday, August 19, 2014 for the Stage 2 finish of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge.
Race Day – Tuesday, August 19th!
Townie Crit – downtown CB –Starting 10:30ish. Bring your townie, a costume and your pedaling legs for the annual shenanigans of the Crested Butte Townie Crit. The course involves twists-and-turns on Elk Avenue, even more than before, giving spectators a new look at this third-year event. Not to worry, the race course still makes its way through the local watering hole, of the Talk of the Town – in through the back of the bar and out the front door. It’s cycling entertainment at its finest, to say the least! Following the Townie Crit – join the informal townie tour crew to ride your bike from downtown Crested Butte up to the finish line in Mt. Crested Butte.
Finish Festival – opens at noon on August 19. Come watch the racers make their way from Aspen to Crested Butte, where all the specatating action takes place. The Finish festival is located in the parking lot at Crested Butte Mountain Resort, 2.5 miles up a grueling final climb for racers before they cross the finish line for day 2 of the big race. There will be cycling vendors throughout the event area and a large jumbo-tron to watch the entire race on the big screen. As racers make their way into the Gunnison Valley, the energy builds, the crowds go wild and this is where you’ll want to be!
