Chasing the USA Pro Cycling Challenge in a Acura TSX Sport Wagon


The 2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon may be the perfect car for a cross country trip chasing a professional bike race.

In the video below we check in with veteran cycling journalist James Raia in Vail, Colorado as he drives from Colorado mountain town to mountain town in the 2011 Acura Sport Wagon chasing the riders of  the 2011 USA Pro Cycling Challenge bike race.

With a 2.4-liter 201-horsepower 170-pound-foot I-4, the 2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon has adequate power to climb the Colorado mountain passes. Of course the turbo-charged engine in the Acura RDX would be even a better choice as the turbo makes up for lost power in the thin Colorado air.

Perhaps the very best reason to pick the TSX to chase a professional bike race like the 2011 USA Pro Cycling Challenge is the vast amounts of room the TSX Sport Wagon brings to the table.

The TSX Sport Wagon has tons of space with 60.5 cubic feet behind the front row and 25.8 behind the second to carry everyting a journalist needs from one bike race stage to the next.

Best of all, the TSX Sport Wagon is rated by the EPA at 22/30 mpg city/highway for fuel economy…which means lots of miles between having to stop to fuel up the chase car.
