Pro Cycling Returning to Colorado in 2023 with $1 Million payout

By Nathan Van Dyne (

Oct 5th, 2022–Professional road cycling is coming to Colorado in 2023 as part of a new series boasting a $1 million payout.


The National Cycling League (NCL) is planning to roll out four criterium races in Denver, Atlanta, Miami and Washington, D.C. And the overall prize purse for men and women will be the largest in U.S. crit racing history.


“Creating the next generation sports community starts with valuing the athletes and their contributions to the fan experience,” Paris Wallace, co-founder and CEO of the venture, said in a news release. “The $1 million purse is just one component of a comprehensive infrastructure designed to equitably support and reward top male and female professional athletes.”
