Pro Challenge seeking volunteers

The USA Pro Challenge is seeking volunteers for all seven stages of the professional cycling race, which will start in Aspen and Snowmass on Aug. 19 and 20.

Approximately 5,000 volunteers in communities throughout the state participated in last year’s second annual race. In each of the host cities, as many as 500 local volunteers were recruited to help staff the race.

Volunteers looking for an opportunity to participate in the race can apply online for positions at volunteer-signup. The majority of volunteers are needed to serve as course marshals, providing support for the professional course marshals that travel with the tour and the local law enforcement authorities in each city. Course marshal volunteers have an opportunity to be on the race route, close to the cyclists, with responsibility for monitoring pedestrian traffic, barricades and street closures.

Volunteers must be older than 18 or accompanied by an adult. Additionally, group registrations are welcome. All volunteers receive a free USA Pro Challenge T-shirt and will have a front-row seat to experience the excitement.

To volunteer in Snowmass Village, call Gerry Butler at 970-923-4036.

Snowmass history: Racing stripes

“The Hang Ten Cup, the second annual women’s pro race at Snowmass, in January, saw 25 professional women racing for over $7,000 in prize money in the exciting dual head-to-head competition,” reported the February 1974 Snowmass Affairs Magazine.
