The Quiznos Pro Challenge is a grueling, 600 mile, seven day race through the most majestic and treacherous terrain Colorado and the Rocky Mountains have to offer.

Specific route details were not released, but the start and finish spots indicate a very mountainous route, with few sprinter stages. “We had so much interest from incredible cities across Colorado that we could hold an event of twice the duration,” said Ellen Kramer, Quiznos chief communications officer. “We worked diligently throughout the selection process to incorporate cities that provide terrain that is unique to Colorado and delivers one of the most exciting cycling events in the world. The selected cities will make excellent partners and provide a demanding course for the world’s top cyclists.”

The announcement was made at a press conference held on the front steps of the Colorado State Capitol Building in front a crowd of approximately 1,000 people convened to later take part in a social bike ride lead by Armstrong, who announced the ride via Twitter several days prior.

“We are an American team based in Colorado so we're extremely excited about the Quiznos Pro
Challenge,” said Ryder Hesjedal, seventh-place finisher at the 2010 Tour de France. “Colorado has some of the best training grounds in North America and the racing is going to be incredible.”

“Our mission is to create an experience that is unique to the state of Colorado while remaining focused on our goal of building one of the preeminent sporting properties in North America,” said Joe Moller, president of the Quiznos Pro Challenge. “The website is just the beginning of our ascent into the digital space for the Quiznos Pro Challenge.”
