The second-annual USA Pro Cycling Challenge will return to Colorado in August. The 683-mile race will begin on Aug. 20 in Durango, Colo., and the final stage will end in Denver on Aug. 26. This year, NBC News has extended its coverage of the race to include two hours on both Aug. 25 and Aug. 26. "We want to make the USA Pro Challenge accessible to as many people around the world as possible," said Shawn Hunter, CEO of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, in a statement today. "With the added live coverage on both Saturday and Sunday ... we are able to reach fans around the country that aren't able to make it to Colorado, as well as new audiences."
