Professional cyclists and Colorado residents Rory Sutherland and Timmy Duggan are set to lead the 2013 Pro Challenge Experience presented by UnitedHealthcare, a mass participation bike ride taking place in Fort Collins on Sunday, Aug. 11.
Fans will have the opportunity to meet and ride alongside Sutherland and Duggan, members of Team Saxo-Tinkoff, just one week shy of their respective participation in the 2013 USA Pro Challenge, which kicks off in Aspen on Aug. 19.
Open to all ages, the Pro Challenge Experience gives recreational cyclists an opportunity to challenge themselves against some of the most difficult and scenic terrain in the world. Beginning in Fort Collins, a host city for the professional race, Pro Challenge Experience participants can choose to ride one of three distances — 30, 52 or 108 miles of mountainous roads.
