Haute RouteHaute Route logo, the world’s most prestigious multi-day event series for amateur cyclists, established this week its North American headquarters in Colorado Springs. Its European headquarters are in Switzerland.

Located on the west side of downtown Colorado Springs, the office is led by Haute Route’s head of operations for North America, Micah Rice.

“We chose Colorado Springs because the city is home to several national and international sports organizations, the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee and USA Cycling, not to mention countless sports-minded young professionals who could be great additions to Haute Route in the future,” said Rice.

In partnership with the Colorado Springs Sports Corporation and the Colorado Springs Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Colorado Springs Chamber & EDC worked with Haute Route on talent recruitment to help secure the headquarters.

“Haute Route’s announcement of its North American headquarters in Colorado Springs further solidifies Colorado Springs as a top market for amateur sports in the United States,” said Tammy Fields, with the Chamber & EDC.

Colorado Springs will host the final stage of the Mavic Haute Route Rockies June 29, 2018, which features a climb more than 14,000 feet to the summit of Pikes Peak, one of the most famous summits in the United States. The climb will bring riders to the highest point ever reached by the Haute Route.
