The 2012 USA Pro Challenge is a world class professional bicycling event throughout Colorado from August 20‐26, 2012.  The race is expected to draw tens of thousands of people to Golden, and will be televised on NBC and NBC Sports to the world.  Golden will likely be featured prominently as host to the beginning of Stage 6. We are striving to make our Start Village a world class event and looking for world class partners.

The Start Village will be the focal point of weekend of great events that will include:

  • Citizens Hill Climb on Lookout Mountain: very popular event
  • Movie viewing:  Breaking Away – a cult classic
  • The Big Race: Live feed from start to finish on our giant screen
  • Post race concert featuring The Samples

We hope that our Start Village will showcase our leadership in Sustainability, Health and Wellness, and we are asking all vendors to sign a pledge of commitment to best practices in sustainability.

Parfet Park will be the lively nucleus of the weekend’s activities.  Don’t miss the chance to be a part of it!

Good Food!  Good Beer!  A JumboTron!  The Samples in Concert!
