The Tour de Georgia has already visited Atlanta this year and soon amateurs will get their chance to race there, too. The inaugural Tour of Atlanta stage race will feature seven stages in five days in and around the Atlanta area from May 22 through 26.
The stages include a mix of time trials, criteriums and road races. Unique for events like this, the first day of racing will include street sprints, and in fact, the time bonuses awarded for the street sprints may turn out to be the difference between winning and losing the general classification.
