Bicycle stage racing saw its heyday back in the 80's with the Coors Classic in Colorado (probably best-known as the setting for the Kevin Costner film American Flyers
). The past few years have seen a return of major stages races to US soil, with the Tour de Georgia
and the Tour of California
, and new last year, the Tour of Missouri
. Now, coming next month to our next-door neighbor, is the inaugural Tour of Pennsylvania
Beginning on June 24 in Philadelphia, the Tour of PA will have stops in Downingtown, Carlisle, Camp Hill, Bedford, Latrobe, Ligonier, and ending in Pittsburgh. Eighteen domestic and international teams are scheduled to compete.
So, here's your chance to see some professional racing action without having to travel across the country or to another continent!
