Presented by VF Corporation
The 2019 Colorado Classic® presented by VF Corporation will race through four host communities each with a history of staging pro bicycle races -- Steamboat Springs, Avon, Golden and Denver -- August 22-25, organizers of the race announced today. This is the first time the Colorado Classic, the western hemisphere’s premier women’s standalone race, will be in a different Colorado town or city for each stage of the race. While the courses have yet to be finalized in each location, it is expected the four-day race will follow iconic Colorado routes featuring tough climbs, spectacular sprints and fan-friendly circuits. All four communities have been part of Colorado’s more than 40-year history of staging world-class pro bicycle racing events. There will be a Colorado Classic Expo at each host location celebrating cycling, health, fitness, and women’s empowerment with a curated array of exhibitors, events, and food and beverage experiences. More than a race, the Colorado Classic is becoming a movement, helping to create equity in female professional cycling while inspiring and empowering women of all ages to transform the world through sports. "We have no doubt that our magnificent terrain will notch up the thrills as the Colorado Classic creates cycling history this summer with an all-woman format," said Cathy Ritter, director of the Colorado Tourism Office, a major event sponsor. "We're excited to know that cycling fans around the world will have a chance to see world-class racing in a world-class setting."
