Cycling fans have spoken, and the final leg of the 2014 USA Pro Challenge will go from Boulder to Denver.

The world's top riders will race across Colorado Aug. 18-24, and they will return to Colorado Springs for a circuit race around Colorado Springs on Aug. 21.

Organizers left the final stage up to fans, who voted to have the route start in Boulder and finish in downtown Denver, with a climb over Lookout Mountain in Golden. Other options included a Denver circuit race; Golden to Denver; and Boulder to Golden.

"Cycling fans are so passionate and such an important part of the sport, so we decided to give them a voice in the route selection process," race CEO Shawn Hunter said. "We wanted to try something new this year and by incorporating fan feedback we have come up with what is going to be an incredible final day of racing."

The exact routes of each stage will be announced in the spring. In Colorado Springs, organizers have said to expect three or four laps on a 25-mile course past the city's most famous landmarks.
