We’re not surprised that Boulder wrangled a stop on the tour, what with all the Ironman athletes and the high ratio of bicycles to cars. What is surprising is that Steamboat Springs is off the list. The town was both the end and start of stages in 2011 (pictured).
Here is the list of the 2012 host cities for the USA Pro Cycling Challenge:
Stage 1: Durango; Telluride
Stage 2: Montrose; Crested Butte/Mt. Crested Butte
Stage 3: Gunnison; Aspen
Stage 4: Aspen; Beaver Creek/Vail Valley
Stage 5: Breckenridge; Colorado Springs
Stage 6: Golden; Boulder
Stage 7: Denver
