Grandview date announced

The Germain Tour de Grandview Cycling Classic will celebrate 16 years in central Ohio when the event returns to Grandview Heights on June 28 and 29 this year. The event features two days of bicycle racing through the streets of suburban Grandview, as well as a number events and activities for spectators and cyclists alike.

"The Germain Tour de Grandview is a wonderful tradition and one of the great summer events in central Ohio," said Grandview Heights Mayor Ray DeGraw. "We're pleased to be bringing the race back for the 16th time in 2008 and look forward to another star-studded field, some incredible racing, and a great time for all those who come out to enjoy and support it."

Among the events scheduled for this year's race are a Kids' Sprints competition and Ohio Series Criterium race on Saturday afternoon; a Saturday night street party with food, drinks, live entertainment and children's activities; and a final set of criterium races on Sunday afternoon.

The races will feature both men and women cyclists in multiple professional categories. The criterium courses will cover a number of the hilly, tree-lined streets on either side of Grandview Avenue, the city's main thoroughfare.
