Sagan Powers to Stage 1 Victory in 2013 USA Pro Challenge
Peter Sagan continued his stellar season with a two-length win and assumed the lead Monday after the opening stage of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge.
But the twosome was caught within a mile from the finish.
The seven-day event continues Tuesday with the 126.1-mile trek from Aspen to Breckenridge. The stage includes three climbs, including the ascent over Independence Pass -- an elevation of 12,095 feet -- about 20 miles into the stage.
The event's third edition continues through Sunday.
