We’ve all been waiting for this — and now we’re ready to reveal the routes for each stage of the Colorado Classic. Click HERE for detail on routes and elevation profiles for both men and women’s races in Colorado Springs, Breckenridge, and Denver.
The Colorado Classic race routes will test the field and create new and unique experiences for spectators over the race’s four stages, August 10-13. Courses start and finish from the same location — as opposed to point-to-point races — and stages 1, 2 and 4 are “circuits” featuring multiple laps on challenging courses. Men pro cyclists in the 4-stage race will cover 313 miles (503.5 km) and endure more than 20,000 feet of intense, high-altitude climbing and women pros in their 2-stage race will follow essentially the same course as the men, and cover 70 miles (113.2 km) and power through more than 5,800 feet of climbing.
