Updated: August 10, 2011, 14:07

DENVER (AP) Top cyclists George Hincapie, Christian Vande Velde and Robert Gesink are in the field for the inaugural USA Pro Cycling Challenge later this month.

The trio boosts an already strong lineup for the race through the Rocky Mountains and the Colorado Front Range that includes Tour de France podium finishers Cadel Evans and Andy and Frank Schleck.

Hincapie is on the BMC Racing Team and Vande Velde is on the Garmin-Cervelo team and Gesink races for Rabobank Cycling Team.

The provisional rosters are subject to change.

In all, 136 riders will compete in the weeklong race that begins Aug. 22. They'll traverse 518 miles at altitude, gaining more than two miles in elevation before finishing in downtown Denver on Aug. 28.
