Tour de Grandview to award equal payout

A US$20,000 purse will be on the line when hundreds of top pros return to central Ohio for the 2008 Tour de Grandview Cycling Classic on June 28-29. The lion's share of the purse will be awarded to the top finishers in the elite men's and women's categories although masters and juniors will also take home money. The Tour will award equal prize money to the men and women.

"We're very proud to be able to offer such a sizable purse for this year's Tour and to reward our top men and women finishers equally," said Tour organizer Julie Whitley of the Grandview Community Association. "It's a testament not only to the growth and stature of the event, but also the generous contributions of Germain and our many other corporate supporters."
