USA Pro challenge cancels this year’s Colo. bike race
April 7, 2016
DENVER — The USA Pro Challenge has canceled this year's bike race and hopes to return next year with new sponsors.
Supporters have been looking for new sponsors after the bike race's main backers stepped aside last year.
Richard and Rick Schaden had been financing the race with their own money. They spent about $20 million to fund the race through its first five years.
The Pro Challenge has become a major biking event in Colorado, with hundreds of thousands of people lining the race routes across the state.
