Due to significant interest on the part of racers and spectators alike, the community of Grandview Heights, Ohio, USA, is once again returning its classic three day cycling race to the calendar from June 17-19, 2005. Formerly known as the Wendy's International Cycling Classic, the race will be renamed the Global Living Tour de Grandview after home furnishing company Global Living was signed up as the major sponsor.
"When racers come to the Grandview Heights event this year, they are going to see how supportive this community is of this event," said Grandview Mayor Ray DeGraw. Race director J. Baumeister added, "Although discussion about events are ongoing, I can say that riders and teams are not going to want to miss the event this year. We have a lot of new blood in the event and they have some very exciting plans for 2005". Those plans include a new circuit race, an increased prize list that will remain equal for the pro men and women's events, and increased media exposure (TV, radio and print).
