US Pro Cycling Challenge – Aug 22-29th – Colorado, USA

128 of the best cyclists in the world descended on Colorado Springs, Colorado to kick off the inaugural USA Pro Cycling Challenge. The six-day event began with a prologue and includes four stages and a time-trial, spread out over 600-miles of the Rocky Mountains and the highest altitude course ever.

I was fortunate to tag along not on the media side, but on the sponsor side for Nissan. It was an amazing experience from traveling through one of the most beautiful parts of the country (Rocky Mountains and small mountain towns like Steamboat Springs and Crested Butte) seeing some of the most unbelievable athletes in the world, and witnessing the cycling fever grow exponentially in the US.

Below are the few shots I got while on break from working in the sponsor village for Nissan.
