After a successful first race back from injury at the Tour of Utah, BMC's Taylor Phinney said Sunday that he is excited to be competing this week in his home state of Colorado at the USA Pro Challenge.

"It's kind of just dawning on me today that it's really going to happen and I'm going to be able to race the USA Pro Challenge," he said during the pre-race press conference in Steamboat Springs.
