USA Pro Challenge from Aspen to Beaver Creek
“At 2K I didn’t think I was going to win.
What was going through my mind?
I heard my wife’s voice saying
‘don’t look back!’
All I wanted to do was look back,
and I didn’t.
So I guess those are words to for
young riders to live by
– when you want to win,
don’t look back.”
- Tom Danielson, following his USA Pro Challenge Stage 3 win in Aspen
Following an exciting finish to the Queen Stage, the USA Pro Challenge teams spent an evening in Aspen and now head out this morning for Stage 4 of the USA Pro Challenge. Christian Vande Velde will be wearing the yellow jersey as the riders how out of town. Start time is 11:25 am.
