Promoters of the Tour of Connecticut, announced today that the 2006 race will be held over the weekend of September 17 and 18 - a change from the traditional May dates of the event. The new fall date will no doubt be a welcomed change from the spring showers of last year's race, and might even include a few turning leaves. Race promoter John Eustice hopes that new date will benefit from the new USPRO Road Championships taking place a few weeks earlier. "The new date will follow Sparta Cycling’s Univest Grand Prix on September 9 and 10, and the new United States Professional Championship held over the Labor Day weekend," said Eustice. The Tour of Connecticut began as the Housatonic Valley Classic in 2001.
