Professional cyclist and current Boulder resident Lucas Euser had to miss this year’s USA Pro Cycling Challenge because of health issues, but his mind is still on the race as he’s turned broadcaster to cover the event for CBS4.
After many days spent getting used to the altitude in Colorado’s high country, some of the world’s best cyclists departed Monday morning on the first stage of the USA Pro Challenge.
Boulder’s Taylor Phinney is back in Colorado recovering from a horrific crash at the US Cycling championships in Chattanooga, Tenn. last May. His injuries will keep him out of the USA Pro Challenge that begins in Aspen on Aug. 18.
Lucas Euser is a 28-year-old pro cyclist who lives in Boulder. He rode for the Garmin team until a nasty crash three years ago that nearly ended his career.
