ASPEN, Colo. (AP) -- The team of 2013 Tour de France winner Christian Froome says the cyclist will take part in the USA Pro Challenge in Colorado.

Team Sky said on its website Friday that the Briton would compete in the 2013 USA Pro Challenge. Organizers of the Colorado stage race had said in June that Team Sky would participate, but it wasn't known whether Froome would come along.

The seven-stage race gets started in Aspen and Snowmass Village on Aug. 19 and ends in downtown Denver on Aug. 25.
