USA Pro Cycling Challenge Boulder

Stage 6 was the biggest day in American pro cycling history. With 18 Boulder County based professional cyclists the entire town became a massive sports arena as stage 6 of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge descended on Boulder. The biggest crowds of any stage yet in the race lined Flagstaff to see Rory Sutherland, a Boulder resident from Australia, win the stage with a gutsy move just under four miles from the finish.Sutherland-USA-Pro-Challenge-Boulder-winner
