PelotonscenicUSAPC4 813 240 560x348The week-long USA Pro Cycling Challenge concluded on Sunday in Denver with American, Tejay van Garderen winning. This was the 3rd running of the Challenge, which is essentially the Tour of Colorado. It has taken the Tour of California‘s spot as the premier race in the United States. Although it’s held at the same time as the Vuelta a España, the USA Pro Challenge still attracts some major talent from around the world, including this year’s Tour de France winner, Chris Froome.

The scenery in Colorado is absolutely stunning, and the terrain and fans can compete with any other country on earth when it comes to hosting a cycling race. The folks at Velonews posted a photo gallery each day of the race from photographer Casey B. Gibson and we’ve selected 20 of our favorites to share with you below.
