— Steamboat Springs cyclist Amy Charity got a strong start to the women’s USA Pro Challenge on Friday, competing in the Stage 1 time trial in Breckenridge.

Competing for Optum Cycling, Charity placed 27th overall in the 64-rider field that tackled the 8.4-mile route around the town. She finished in 23 minutes, 52.06 seconds. That left her 2:28 behind Stage 1 leader Kristin Armstrong, a two-time Olympic gold time trial medalist.

Optum was led by Lex Albrecht, who finished 16th and 1:38 behind Armstrong. Charity was the second-fastest rider on the team. Alison Tetrick was third for the squad, Maura Kinsella was fourth and Ariane Horbach fifth.



The women return to action Saturday for Stage 2 of the three-stage event. They’ll ride 58 miles from Loveland, through nearby mountains, to Fort Collins.

Stage 3 sends riders around Golden in a circuit race.
