Letter (Aug. 23): Pro Challenge a boon for Aspen

Pro Challenge a boon for Aspen

Dear Editor:

Thank you to all those responsible for bringing the USA Pro Challenge to Aspen this year!

I do hope Aspen can once again be the start town for next year’s USA Pro Challenge bike race. It has been amazing to see the enthusiasm, the numbers of people and bikes everywhere during these past few weeks and days. This event has brought back the visitor who is consistent with what Aspen is all about.

It has been wonderful seeing the riders we only get to watch on TV during the Tour de France, right here in our backyard, riding our roads and enjoying the beauty of Aspen’s numerous, challenging road rides. So many people have actually met these incredible athletes face to face, and we have all been inspired by their speed, strength and presence.

Now if we could only get the men’s World Cup races back!

Catalina Cruz
