This is the Mother of All Ways to Experience the USA Pro Challenge

April 18, 2014 at 10:11 AM | by | ()

Fans of the cycling circuit are no doubt looking forward to this summer's USA Pro Challenge in Denver, when the world's best racers will take on an eight-city route through the Rocky Mountains, including Aspen, Crested Butte, Colorado Springs, Gunnison, Breckenridge, Vail, Denver, and Boulder. The typical spectator might hit one or two of them, but a company called NextGreatTrip has created the mother of all VIP itineraries for the race should you have an extra $9,500 lying around.

Just for fun, since we've been talking about how to best use that tax refund, we present this eight-day itinerary that transports participants to each stage of the race via private jet in the company of Ron Kiefel, a seven-time Tour de France racer and an Olympic cycling bronze medalist.

What's included:

· Five charter flights between each host city from VIP private airport terminals (Aspen, Crested Butte, Colorado Springs, Vail, and Denver/Boulder) aboard a 30-seat Dornier-328 Jet.

· Seven nights of lodging at luxury hotels within each destination

· The opportunity to drive alongside the riders in a VIP caravan car during one stage of the race

· Access to VIP viewing & hospitality tents at every stage

· Invitations to VIP parties during race week

· Opportunity to meet and interact with professional cyclists

· Chance to ride two race stages prior to the pros (NextGreatTrip will transport guests’ bikes throughout the week)

· On-site support throughout the trip to serve as a resource and personal concierge

For how spendy the package is, we can't argue that there are some really good experiences in there. Tax season wasn't that kind to us, unfortunately, so maybe next year.
