Stage One of the USA Pro Challenge started today in Durango. I had the opportunity to photograph the start of the race as well as the pre and post-race activities in downtown Durango.
Here’s a few selects from the exciting day. In addition to photographs from this race, after the riders left Durango the party continued at Buckley Park in Durango. A jumbotron followed the action as the pelaton left Durango and headed to Telluride to end the stage. Member of the Southern Ute Tribe joined in the festivities with dancers and tribal elders in full regalia.
