After cutting back the number of stages from six to three, and omitting the queen stage to Oak Glen in 2006, the Redlands Classic will get some of its original glory back for 2007. The race will have four stages this year, starting with the prologue time trial on March 22. There will be a new road race course for stage two, followed by the classic downtown criterium and Sunset Road Race stages.
"We are excited to bring the Classic back to its original glory," says Brian King, race director of the Redlands Classic. "We expect Redlands to be one of the most anticipated events on the 2007 National Cycling Calendar." An announcement will full parcours information is anticipated in the coming weeks.
