Modeled after OC Sport's three successful events in Europe - Haute Route Alps, Pyrénées, and Dolomites - Mavic Haute Route Rockies is set for its inaugural run in 2017 with six host cities in Colorado on the route including Stage 7 in Colorado Springs. As many as 550 cyclists are expected.
 
Carving through the heartland of American cycling, the Mavic Haute Route Rockies 2017 will feature an unforgettable combination of jaw-dropping scenery and breathtaking climbs. The event offers committed amateur riders the opportunity to compete with a professional level of off-the-bike support unprecedented in U.S. amateur cycling. 
 
The event starts in Boulder on Saturday, June 24, and finishes in Colorado Springs on Friday, June 30. Competitors face seven timed and ranked stages covering 875km (550 miles) and in excess of 16,000 vertical meters (52,500 feet) of climbing on some of Colorado's best known mountain roads, many soaring above 3,000 meters in altitude (10,000 feet).
