A lot's changed with the USA Pro Challenge bike race since it was announced in August 2010. For one thing, it was initially called the Quiznos Pro Challenge. For another, the two people at center stage for the big unveil were Bill Ritter, who's no longer Colorado's governor, and Lance Armstrong, currently known as the biggest liar on the planet.

Nonetheless, the 2014 version of the USA Pro Challenge, beginning today and running through August 24, looks to be the biggest and best race in the series thus far. Below, we've got photo-illustrated details about all seven stages, including maps and a profile showing the incredible elevation changes from the kickoff in the Aspen area to the grand finale in Boulder and Denver.
