Midwest Cycling Series takes shape

The new Midwest Cycling Series, a ten-day professional cycling series to be held from June 18-28, 2009, is taking shape. As the series evolves from a two-day event in 2008 to a "professionally-produced 10-day Midwest Cycling Series in 2009 featuring top purses in best-of-class venues," according to U.S. Cycling Team Olympian and Team Sports President Tom Schuler, organisers have just announced the coming of Jack Hirt, former executive director of the Bike Federation of Wisconsin, appointed to be Executive Director.

The complete line-up of race cities, along with major sponsors, is expected to be announced in early 2009. However, the historic Downer Avenue bike race in Milwaukee is a confirmed stop on the Midwest Cycling Series, as are the Wisconsin cities of Fond du Lac, Manitowoc and Sheboygan.
