Armstrong launches Colorado tour, Quiznos Pro Challenge

Lance Armstrong, Tour Down Under 2010

Lance Armstrong today presented a new seven-day stage race in Colorado, America. The race will make its debut in August next year, Armstrong and Governor Bill Ritter announced in a press conference.

"What started out as a daydream of mine on a long ride outside of Aspen will now become a reality," said Armstrong. "This race, although new, is already rich in history as is Colorado's storied cycling background - a perfect way to honour our past champions and highlight our future ones."
