Tough day of climbing for USA Pro Challenge riders

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — USA Pro Challenge riders are in for a tough day of climbing.

Thursday’s 103-mile stage starts in Steamboat Springs and features five climbs, including one slightly longer than a mile to the finish to Beaver Creek Village. Gov. John Hickenlooper will be there to award the yellow jersey.

Right now it still belongs to Boulder resident Lachlan Morton, who is 2 seconds ahead of Mathias Frank, the BMC rider from Switzerland. Slovakia’s Peter Sagan won Wednesday’s stage.

Stretches of three highways will be closed at different points during the race — U.S. Highway 40 through Steamboat, Colorado Highway 131 northbound from Wolcott to Oak Creek and U.S. Highway 6 between Wolcott and Avon.
