US Pro Cycling Challenge CEO Shawn Hunter joins us for a discussion about the past, present and future of one of America's greatest stage races. Co-hosted by Duane and Timmy Duggan. Referred to as “America’s Race,” the USA Pro Challenge features seven consecutive days with the world’s top athletes racing through the majestic Colorado Rockies, reaching higher altitudes than they’ve ever had to endure. The US Pro Cycling Challenge is one of the largest cycling events in U.S. history and the largest spectator event in the history of the state of Colorado. The race offers a challenging course and spotlights the best of the best in professional cycling and some of America’s most beautiful scenery.
I was unable to write "...with United Health Care Cycling team's Benjamin Day" this time as Ben formally retired from professional racing following yesterday's final stage of the US Pro Cycling Challenge. After a 17 year racing career, Ben decided it was time to focus on his coaching business 'Day by Day Coaching'. Ben will give us his final recap of the 2014 USPCC. It was an understandably emotional finish for Day but he's excited about the future.
United Health Care Cycling Team's Benjamin Day joins us to discuss Stage 5 of the US Pro Cycling Challenge. This stage’s serene first 80 miles hide a vicious finish and a last chance for climbing specialists to really make a move. Starting in the new host community of Woodland Park, Stage 5 heads west then north through some of the most picturesque terrain in Colorado. A quiet run through the Pike National Forest on Tarryall Rd., which was unpaved until just last year, and the riders will christen it properly with high speeds and lots of breakaway attempts. The action really starts when the race hits Fairplay and begins the long grind up 11,500 ft. Hoosier Pass, the highest point in the race. Then it is on to Breckenridge, where last year’s challenging finish up Moonstone Rd. will be repeated again. This nasty little climb can kill a break or launch a winner.
Primetime host Ted Burns speaks with cyclocross phenom Elle Anderson (California Giant - Specialized) and Beth Newell (USA Cycling Track Team) about their recent exploits.
Anderson has been on a tear this cyclocross season. After winning the first several races on the ProCX Calendar Anderson became one of the few Americans to beat Katie Compton (Trek Cyclocross Collective) when she placed second ahead of Compton at the first day of racing at the Providence Cyclocross festival.
Newell will be racing at the Los Angeles Grand Prix on November 22, 23, and 24. Newell recently won a silver medal at the World Cup track event held in Manchester.
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.
United Health Care's Ben Day checks in from the US Pro Cycling Challenge with Stage 1 details. Stage 1 is the Aspen Circuit Race. The Aspen/Snowmass Circuit may be short on distance, but it packs a punch. At 65 miles (3 laps of nearly 22 miles each), and 2,300 ft. of climbing per lap with minimal recovery, this circuit puts the “challenge” in USA Pro Challenge. Each lap will see the riders grind up to Snowmass Village, then a quick descent leads to two short but steep climbs, and a quick loop through downtown before doing it all again. Pair that with a starting elevation of 7,900 ft. and you have one tough opening day.
Phil Mooney discoverd cycling while attending college in Indiana. While attending graduate school at UC Davis Mooney discovered that he wasn't just good, but had the makings to be professional. Mooney turned professional in 2011 and spent his first year racing all around the UK and Europe with Team Raliegh. After banging heads and handlebars around Europe Mooney joined the Team Jamis in 2012 and is currently in the second year racing professionally in the US.
Mooney talks about the misery and ecstasy of racing in Europe, what it's like to start racing later in life, and how he found his way into cycling. Mooney also discusses the injury that kept him out of the peloton for the early spring and how he's managed the mental and financial challenges a domestic professional faces when confronted with a serious injury.

There are many health benefits that are associated with cycling. Let's look at a few of the major benefits:
Cycling is one of the easiest ways to exercise
You can ride a bicycle almost anywhere, at any time of the year, and without spending a fortune. Many people are put off doing certain sports because of the high level of skill that seems to be required, or perhaps because they can’t commit to a team sport due to time pressures. Most of us know how to cycle and once you have learned you don’t forget. All you need is a bike, a half an hour here or there when it suits, and a bit of confidence.
Cycling builds strength and muscle tone
Contrary to normal perceptions, cycling is not a fitness activity that solely involves the legs. Cycling builds strength in a holistic manner since every single part of the body is involved in cycling.
