Breckenridge has been a favorite stop on the USA Pro Cycling Challenge and will again be included on Stage 5 of the 2014 Challenge. August 22nd racers start bright and early in Woodland Park for a serene 80 mile ride. The route quickly heats up approaching Fairplay as they get closer to Hoosier Pass which boasts the highest point in the race at 11,500 ft. After grinding up the pass the riders will have one last grueling climb up Moonstone Road in Breckenridge. The grand finale ends right on Main Street Breckenridge as thunderous crowds cheer racers to the finish. Not one to leave a great party opportunity alone the Town of Breckenridge will present countless activities during the day and into the evening of this exhilarating event. A “Bike in Movie” will take place at the Riverwalk Center in Breckenridge the evening before the race and a FREE concert featuring Big Head Todd and the Monsters at 7:30pm Friday night will be an undeniable hit.
