USA Cycling added a fifth event to its US Pro Ultra Endurance Tour (US Pro UET) for 2011. The US Cup Six-Hour Sunset Challenge will close out the debut year of the endurance series with overall champions crowned at the end of the six-hour event running from 3:00 to 9:00 pm on Saturday, August 27 in Fontana, California.

"We're very excited and pleased to add a fifth stop on the inaugural Pro UET this year," said USA Cycling National Events Director, Kelli Lusk. "The US Cup organizers have a proven record of producing top-notch events, and Fontana will be a nice fit for a six-hour race."

Fontana hosted a round of the US Pro Cross Country Tour (US Pro XCT) earlier this year.
