$10,000 purse for Masters at Papa John's Pizza "Labor Day LIVE!"

Organiser 2-Wheel Sports has announced what it claims is the richest master's purse in the US. There will be $10,000 up for grabs at the Papa John's Pizza "Labor Day LIVE!" race weekend in Southern Indiana, September 3 - 4, 2005 and the weekend will focus on masters-class cyclists over the age of 30. "More than 60 percent of the 35,000+ USA Cycling members are in the masters category, and there is no other cycling event in the country that caters specifically to these members," said Mike Hewitt of 2Wheelsports. "Racers created these courses, and each venue of the two-day weekend has been specifically tailored to appeal to different disciplines within the sport."

The two-stage event will comprise a hilly road race on Saturday September 3, followed by a criterium in downtown Louisville on Sunday, September 4.
