Saul Locker presents the CSU Best Young Rider Jersey at the 2014 USA Pro Championships
In August 2014, nearly 130 of the world’s best professional cyclists stormed through Colorado for a seven-day stage race – the USA Pro Challenge – that focuses the attention of millions of cycling fans across the globe on the state’s sweeping mountain vistas and hip Western cities and towns. Colorado State University partnered with the race by sponsoring the CSU Best Young Rider Jersey, a race within the race for the most talented up-and-coming rider. Each day, the jersey was passed to the highest placed rider under the age of 23. Clement Chevrier, a Bissell Development team rider, was presented the CSU Best Young Rider Jersey during all seven stages of this year’s Pro Challenge race. Saul Locker, an alumnus of Colorado State University, presented the award to Clement Chevrier on the final day of the race in Denver.
