Breckenridge, Colorado (PRWEB) August 14, 2012
The town of Breckenridge is abuzz with all things rodeo at the moment, but in just 2 weeks, riders of a different sort will be descending on this amazing Victorian town.
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with the USA Pro Cycling Challenge in 2012,” said Breckenridge Mayor, John Warner. "Breckenridge played a prominent role in the inaugural 2011 race and the excitement and energy generated by the event is something we want to continue to build upon.”
"Last year the finish line was right in front of our office. It was the most exciting race. I don't think I have ever seen that many people in Breckenridge. It almost look like the races you see in Europe on TV," said Shannon Sinnard of Ski Country Resorts. She added, "We are super excited that the riders are coming back to Breck and we're offering some last minute deals that will help people get great lodging.
