Taylor Phinney wins USA Pro Challenge Stage 1 in Steamboat Springs20150817 639USCR

“I was pretty much blown away crossing the finish line and it’s going to take awhile to fully process the whole day,” said Taylor Phinney.  “I can tell you crossing the finish line and the roar of the crowd was really special and it was really emotional and was the electric moment that we all live for.”

Phinney outsprinted training partner Kiel Reijnen of the UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling team and BMC Racing teammate Brent Bookwalter of BMC Racing, who took second and third, respectively.

It was an incredible day in Steamboat Springs and we had the biggest crowds we’ve seen at the start of any of our races,” said Shawn Hunter, CEO of USA Pro Challenge. “The impact on the community is tremendous with 100% occupancy in the hotels, and that’s a wonderful thing besides seeing the best cyclists in the world.”
