This morning there was a press release that Cadel Evans is confirmed for the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, slated for August 22-28.
By next week we should know if the entire Tour de France podium from 2011 will be in Colorado for the week-long race. The team rosters should be complete by August 4th. The rumor mills are hot and heavy that the Schleck brothers will be racing in Colorado as well – skipping the Vuelta a Espana.
A couple of weeks prior to the Pro Challenge, on August 13th, the Lifetime Fitness Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race will start their 18th event. There’s no word yet on when a final start roster will be released for this event.
I’ll keep you posted on both rosters.
