Professional Cycling Race Experience Extended to Junior Omnium Competitors

Denver (May 1, 2012) – The USA Pro Cycling Challenge, one of the largest professional cycling races in the United States, has signed on to be the presenting partner for the third-annual Colorado Mini Classic, which will run June 2-3. Taking place in the quiet, small town of Silt, Colo., and with the same street decal signage as the Pro Challenge, the event provides junior athletes with the opportunity to get a taste of world-class competitive cycling action.

“The Colorado Mini Classic reinforces the unique ability of cycling events to impact communities and peoples' lives in a positive and healthy way, while focusing on sportsmanship, racing lessons, good citizenship, athletic performance and the role of family in the quest for individual achievement,” said Chris McGee, executive director, Bicycle Racing Association of Colorado. “The event is a stepping stone for all involved, and with this year's invaluable partnership with the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, we have made a tangible connection between the stars of today and American's future cycling champions.”
