USA Pro Challenge officially dies due to financial woes

The USA Pro Challenge is no more.

Shawn Hunter, the driving force behind the wildly popular pro cycling stage race across Colorado, said Tuesday he is not pursuing the race for 2017. Hunter in February announced the race would not traverse Colorado this summer in what would have been its seventh year as he labored to build a new ownership structure and secure long-term investors.

“We are going to continue exploring opportunities in the sport and certainly opportunities here in Colorado when they arise,” Hunter said Tuesday afternoon. “But all the elements were not there for us to put it together for 2017.”
