American cyclist Lance Armstrong's doping scandal continues.

DENVER (AP) - Lance Armstrong is teaming with Denver-based Quiznos to bring a major international pro-cycling stage race to Colorado next summer.

Armstrong hopes to ride in the weeklong race, titled the Quiznos Pro Challenge. The exact route of the Aug. 22-28, 2011, race has not been mapped out yet, but it will include a mix of mountain, sprint and downtown stages.

The seven-time Tour de France champion told the Associated Press it will run through Denver, which will serve as either the start or finish, and probably Boulder plus other Front Range cities and also through towns in the Rocky Mountains.
