DENVER, CO – Lance Armstrong joined Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, members of Quiznos marketing as well as representatives from USA Pro Cycling Challenge to proudly announce the return of pro-cycling to the state of Colorado. The seven-day Quiznos Pro Challenge is to become one of the most significant cycling competitions taking place around the world. The Quizons Pro will reinvigorate the legacy of the former Colorado based Coors Classic which took place in the late 70’s thru the 80’s.
The media had one major question to ask during the press conference would Lance Armstrong compete in the August 2011 race? Lance chuckled and replied “the other guys will be in much better shape”. With that Lance Armstrong and the Governor Ritter lead a peloton of road bikers starting at the first Quizno’s store at 13th and Grand weaving throughout the city and finally ending up back at the state capitol building.
