USA Pro gets a professional TV deal

Colorado’s weeklong cycling race signs on with NBC and NBC Sports
One year ago, the inaugural USA Pro Cycling Challenge started in downtown Salida. This year, Stage 1 of Colorado’s weeklong professional stage race will start in Durango.
Former Fort Lewis College cyclist Tom Danielson was the poster boy for last year’s USA Pro Cycling Challenge. Danielson, based in Boulder, again is expected to ride in this year’s stage race.
Tour of Utah gets an upgrade

SALT LAKE CITY – Race organizers of the 2012 Tour of Utah said they’ve made the competition even tougher.
The event scheduled for Aug. 7-12 is the first major weeklong stage race after the Tour de France and London Olympics.
Organizers said mileage in this year’s race will increase from 409 to 550 miles. There also will be a 25-percent increase in elevation gain for the week, from 30,000 feet to 37,500 feet of vertical gain, including a new road race on the final day in Park City, Utah.
The event was elevated in 2011 to a 2.1-rated stage race by the sport’s governing body. It is one of four such rated in North America this year.
