MONTROSE, Colo. (AP) -- The USA Pro Challenge cyclists are headed from Montrose to Mount Crested Butte.

Tuesday's undulating stage has three category 3 climbs, including the final 2-mile uphill effort to the finish. That climb was an exciting part of last year's race.

The two new climbs are Cerro Summit and Blue Mesa Summit.

The race will cause delays on U.S. Highway 50 eastbound from Montrose to Gunnison and on Colorado Highway 135 north to Crested Butte.

The cyclists will finish around 4 p.m.
