Tour de France runner up Uran to ride in Colorado Classic
Jul. 27, 2017
DENVER (AP) — Tour de France runner up Rigoberto Uran of Colombia will be among those racing in the inaugural Colorado Classic bicycle race next month.
The field announced Thursday also includes three-time Olympian Taylor Phinney of Boulder and former Tour of Italy stage winners Marco Canola of Italy, Silvan Dillier of Luxembourg and Greg Henderson of New Zealand.
The men's race will be held from Aug. 10 to 13 in Colorado Springs, Breckenridge and the Denver area. The stages will begin and end in the same location rather than going from city-to-city. Three will be circuit races, giving spectators more chances to see the riders.
The roster for the women's race, which will be held Aug. 10 and 11 in Colorado Springs and Breckenridge, was announced last month. It includes Kelly Catlin and Jenn Valente.
