An inspired Tejay van Garderen came home to Colorado this week to defend his 2013 title at the USA Pro Challenge.

Fellow Coloradoan Tom Danielson (Garmin-Sharp) and breakout rider Serghei Tvetcov (Jelly Belly presented by Maxxis) completed the final podium at the fourth edition of the 7-day stage race held at altitude.
