Organisers of the Joe Martin Stage Race announced Wednesday that the event will return to the calendar with a new date from August 26-29 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The event, normally held in April, was cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic but will embark on its 44th edition as part of the Pro Road Tour (PRT) and the UCI America Tour. 

“Not holding the race in 2020 was the responsible and prudent decision out of concern for public health and safety,” said Race Director Bruce Dunn in a press release.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
