The USA Pro Challenge recently announced the route for this year’s bicycling race, and as expected, Colorado Springs was not among the stage cities. KRCC’s Tucker Hampson reports.
The race provides an economic boost to all of Colorado, bringing in over $100 million statewide.
Director of Communications with the Colorado Springs Convention and Visitors Bureau Chelsy Offutt says the event continues to grow, with a 12% increase in revenue last year. Offut says Colorado Springs did put in a bid to host the Pro Challenge this year, but didn’t make the cut.
