Game Day With Shawn Hunter
Published September 10, 2012, Page 28
During the Aug. 20-26 USA Pro Cycling Challenge, race CEO Shawn Hunter traded in his boardroom for Colorado’s mountain passes, and his executive wardrobe became a gray T-shirt and Bermuda shorts. Don’t let the casual clothes fool you. Hunter oversaw a rolling circus of 130 riders, 1,000 employees and 2,500 volunteers, and the race reached more than 1 million spectators during its seven-day, 683-mile route. On Sunday, Aug. 26, SportsBusiness Journal correspondent Fred Dreier shadowed Hunter during the race’s final time trial in downtown Denver, where Hunter mingled with VIPs, met with media and oversaw the race’s various moving parts.
