GUNNISON, Colo. (AP) USA Pro Challenge riders will have another uphill finish as they race from Gunnison to Monarch Mountain.

The cyclists will head west over Monarch Mountain once on Wednesday before doing two loops through Salida and the surrounding area before heading up the mountain again from the other side. They'll finish at the Monarch Mountain Ski Area.

Boulder's Alex Howes of Garmin-Sharp has the yellow jersey after finishing second in Tuesday's stage from Aspen to Mount Crested Butte. Robin Carpenter crossed the finish line six seconds ahead of him.

Race officials halted the competition for about five minutes after heavy rain created dangerous road conditions on the descent from Kebler Pass just outside Crested Butte.
