"The crowds are bigger this week than any race on United States soil up to now.  This is the best race in American history."

Pat McQuaid, UCI President

The opportunity to participate in a race like this, of this caliber is a beautiful thing. The crowds are so positive and so happy. They see us on TV, and then in person, and they freak! It’s invigorating. There’s definitely more to come.”

Chiristian Vande Velde (USA), Team Garmin-Sharp-Barracuda

"I look at this race from an outside perspective. I don’t think it couldn’t have been any more exciting or dramatic. The leads changed daily, and the jersey’s switched back and forth. It’s the same three guys battling for overall as it was last year. We are building a story here. When I was 13 years old I read about the Coors Classic, and made me want to ride. I think this race accomplishes the same thing. I hope we are inspiring the next generation of cyclists through the USA Pro Challenge."

"I don’t know if I’ve ever raced in a place where the fans have been so appreciative. I want to thank the state of Colorado for coming out and supporting the USA Pro Cycling Challenge. People here were so appreciative and I will come away thinking that I want to come back because of that. It is something that stays in my mind – the ambiance that a race creates is not always controllable but in Colorado this week the culture and timing and weather all contributed to the race. From what I saw it was incredibly successful.”

Winner, 2011 Tour de France
