Peace Race wants Pro Tour status

"The Peace Race will continue, and it is worth more than its present minorrating," said race director Peter Notter. "I will do battle with the UCI,because the Peace Race deserves Pro Tour ranking. It is in every respectan important race, even if we don't have as many financial resources assome other races." He also noted that things are looking better on thatfron, though, with the possibility of the Czech brewery Budweiser joining as a sponsor. The race was not held last year due to lack of funds.

The 58th Peace Race ended on Saturday, with Barloworld's Giampaolo Cheula taking the overall win.
