Quiznos Pro Challenge Team Update

USA Pro Cycling Challenge - 5 new teams announced 
Hopefully the race will attract some of the best teams and riders in the world. But just because a team is signed up to participate in the race, does not mean they will bring their best riders to this late season race. The Vuelta is going on in Spain at the same time as the tour in Colorado (just as the Giro is the same time as the Tour of California). Worlds are one week after this high-altitude stage race, which will also require travel for many of the riders. What Colorado will have to offer is fantastic scenery, long climbs, and good weather in August.  

The final teams rosters for the USA Pro Cycling Challenge (the old Quiznos Pro Challenge) have yet to be announced. *more Teams to be announced in coming months  

The 5 latest participating Teams announced  are: 
  • Leopard-Trek (Luxembourg)
  • UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team (USA)
  • Team Type 1-sanofi aventis (USA)
  • Skil-Shimano (Netherlands)
  • Team Spidertech Powered By C10 (Canada)
