2011 USA Pro Challenge

Colorado has seen its fair share of cycling, but there was no denying the level of electricity in the air when the first rider rolled out of the start house for the 2011 USA Pro Cycling Challenge. The Centennial State is the spiritual home of pro cycling in America and to see it resurrected with a top shelf stage race meant that all eyes of the sport would be trained on every development that took place out on the road. No matter how things shook out, Team RadioShack's Levi Leipheimer knew that he wanted to figure significantly in how the story of the inaugural event was written.

2012 USA Pro Challenge

The Sprinter jersey is awarded to the rider that accumulates the most bonus points, which are given based on sprint line performances as well as finishing the stage in the top-15 places. Cyclists who specialize in bursts of power and speed, or consistently finish near the top of each stage, will have the best chance to wear this respected green jersey. For a twist on the traditional color, this green jersey is streamlined with stripes, symbolic of the speed and power required of sprinters.
