MOUNTAIN TOWNS, COLORADO
Pro Cyclist Says: “During the Pro Cycling Challenge Colorado, I was most impressed by the beautiful mountain towns—such as Aspen, Beaver Creek and Breckenridge—which are best known for their ski resorts,” says 24-year-old Elia Viviani, the Italian road and track star who won two out of seven stages of the 2011 Colorado tour. “It was amazing to see these places in the summer without any snow.”
Your Ride is Here: Join Viviani and his teammates at this year’s tour via Cannondale's Pro Tour VIP access bike-ation ($2,995, Aug 18-21). Meet and greet the pros at the event’s base village in Aspen, then hit the road yourself on a borrowed Cannondale SuperSix for a grand tour of the Rockies.
