Stage 6 of the 2013 USA Pro Challenge bicycle race charged through Northern Colorado Saturday  afternoon.  Thousands of fans and curious onlookers lined the 115 mile course and packed into Old Town, Fort Collins for the finish.

The stage started at the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland.  The cyclist then sped through Windsor and right past the radio station at 600 Main Street where I captured a few photos.  From the 1st rider to the last was less than 30 seconds, at that point in the race.   The cyclists then made their way into Loveland and up the Big Thompson Canyon into Estes Park and back down again through Masonville, around Horsetooth Reservoir (Where I got a few more pictures) and then down into Old Town Fort Collins for an exciting finish.

Peter Sagan took the stage win and Colorado resident Tejay van Garderen held onto the Leader Jersey through Stage 6.
