The Colorado Classic presented by VF Corporation today announced the four cities that will host the bicycle race this summer. At a press event at the Colorado State Capitol, race organizers and State Governor Jared Polis welcomed Snowmass Village, Avon, Boulder and Denver as the host communities for the 2020 edition of the race. Held August 27-30, 2020, the Colorado Classic, which debuted successfully in 2019 as a women-only race after two mixed editions in 2017 and 2018, is North America’s only stand-alone women’s professional stage race.
The courses in Snowmass Village (Aug. 27), Avon (Aug. 28), Boulder (Aug. 29) and Denver (Aug. 30), have yet to be finalized, but the event will follow iconic Colorado routes featuring tough climbs, gravel roads, sprint sections and selected circuits. The full routes will be released in the coming months, including key details for cyclists and spectators about start/finish locations, mileage, circuit laps, elevation changes, sprints and Queen of the Mountain (QOM) climbs.
With public events held at each location, the race is planned to be a four-day, family-friendly celebration of health, fitness, and community. For those unable to travel, the Colorado Classic will offer free start-to-finish TV streaming coverage.
