Gavin Mannion - the newest member of Team Garmin Sharp - joins us this evening for a look at Stage 2 of the US Pro Cycling Challenge.  Alex Howes of Garmin Sharp took possession of the Leader's Jersey today racing through some truly awful weather conditions.  Stage 2 opened fast by ripping down the Aspen Valley through the sprint cities of Basalt and Carbondale before tackling the 8,700 ft. McClure Pass. A short descent brings the race to Gunnison County road 12, which is a 20-mile rollercoaster that constantly changes from pavement to dirt and back again, while topping out at 9,900 ft. over Kebler Pass. A technical descent into Crested Butte brings the race back to familiar terrain. As in 2011 and 2012, the race will finish up with a sprint through downtown Crested Butte and the steep finish climb up to Mt. Crested Butte.
