City Looking into Bringing National Bike Race to GJ
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.The Grand Junction Visitor and Convention Bureau began talks Tuesday on bringing the USA Pro Cycling Challenge through Grand Junction for the first time.
The city is currently looking into the bidding process to convince race organizers that Grand Junction would be a great location.
The bureau says that events like this are perfect for promoting Grand Junction to the rest of the world, but it does come at a high cost.
Officials say that bringing the challenge here would cost our city hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The last Pro Challenge in August went through seven different city circuits in Colorado and came as close as Aspen.
There's no official timeline as to when the city will make concrete efforts to bring the bike race through here.
