STAGE 2: AVON presented by FirstBank
Stage 2, the Queen Stage, is really two stages in one. The opening 35 miles on a flat 5 mile circuit for 7 laps will run off fast and technical like a criterium. Then an extra lap of 15 miles will tackle one of Colorado’s most notorious climbs, the ridiculously steep Daybreak Ridge. This climb through Beaver Creek to a QOM hits grades of 14% and also features a fast, technical descent through Bachelor Gulch. Watch the best female climbers in the world, many in their native Colorado terrain.
