Published January 17, 2018

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (BRAIN) — Event organizers Haute Route has opened its North American headquarters here, on the west side of downtown Colorado Springs. The office is led by Haute Route's head of operations for North America, Micah Rice.

"Colorado is the heartland of American cycling, making it the ideal location for the Haute Route North American headquarters as we continue to build premium amateur cycling experiences across the U.S. and Canada," said Rice. "We chose Colorado Springs because the city is home to several national and international sports organizations, the United States Olympic Committee and USA Cycling, not to mention countless sports-minded young professionals who could be great additions to Haute Route in the future."

Tom Osborne, the president and CEO of the Colorado Springs Sports Corporation, said, "The Colorado Springs Sports Corporation, in partnership with the Colorado Springs Convention Visitors Bureau and the Colorado Springs Chamber & EDC, is extremely pleased that our efforts were successful in establishing Colorado Springs as the headquarters for Haute Route North America. With over 60 national or international sports organizations located in our community, what better location than Olympic City USA for this organization as they grow and expand efforts to bring unparalleled cycling experiences to North America." 

Colorado Springs will also host the final stage of this year's Mavic Haute Route Rockies, on June 29. The stage features a climb to the summit of Pikes Peak, which will bring riders to the highest point ever reached by the Haute Route.
