Event Description

Join Chris Carmichael and a team of CTS Coaches for the most challenging days you’ll ever spend on your bike! The 2016 USA Pro Cycling Challenge (August 15-21, 2016) travels over some of the most beautiful and arduous terrain in the United States, including high-altitude mountain passes, deep river valleys and wide-open prairie. Exclusively available through our partnership with the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, you’ll have the opportunity to eat, sleep, ride, and live like a pro cyclist:

  • You’ll ride every stage just hours before the pros, and the CTS Team will only reach the finish line if we’re fast enough to stay ahead of the pros!
  • You’ll enjoy VIP Access to all Stage Finishes!
  • You’ll stay in the team hotels and dine with the pro teams after each stage!
  • You’ll have professional mechanics working on your bike during and between stages!
  • You’ll have professional soigneurs providing post-ride massage therapy!
  • You’ll get three (3) CTS Cycling Jerseys included with your registration!

This is a once-in-a-lifetime cycling experience with Chris Carmichael and CTS Coaches, and due to high demand we’re taking applications for riders who want to be selected for our 2015 USAPCC Team.
