On the Hill: Riding the Stage 4 KOM at the USA Pro Challenge

On the Hill Summer, brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute, brings you a video report about a different High Country adventure every weekday.

Today's activity: Riding Stage 4 of the USA Pro Challenge

Conditions: With the USA Pro Challenge coming through the Vail Valley, cyclists from around the world are excited to see first-hand just what kind of riding the pros are encountering on the various stages that run through Colorado. Thursday's Queen Stage from Steamboat to Beaver Creek contained the hardest climb of the race, and a Scout the Stage event allowed amature cyclists to try it out.

Today's weather: A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after noon. Partly sunny, with a high near 71. South wind 5 to 10 mph becoming west in the afternoon. — National Weather Service
