Elite amateur racers set for Tour of Ohio

The 12th annual Tour of Ohio is expected to draw more than 4,000 total participants, including some from as far away as Canada and Hong Kong, but the highlight of the event will be a five-day elite amateur race from June 17-21.

The stage race opens with a criterium in Mount Vernon. Stage two features a 70-mile hilly loop in the Hocking Hills Region. It includes the famous Glick Hill which was part of the 1993 US National Road Race Championships. The third stage will take the race from Gambier, Ohio to Coshocton, Ohio and back to Gambier. For the first time, the race will climb the 14% Hill Street climb out of Roscoe Village in Coshocton, and have a hilltop finish in Gambier. After a stage four neighborhood criterium in Worthington, Ohio, stage five will conclude with laps on a five kilometer loop in Granville, Ohio.

In addition to the overall, jerseys will be awarded for best sprinter, best hill climber, best category three rider jersey and best collegiate athlete.
