Tour of Arkansas debuts

In a year where several American races like the Tour of America, Tour de Toona, and Tour of Virginia have either been canceled or are scaling back, several new events have stepped up their game. One such event is the Inaugural Tour of Arkansas. Two events, the former Tri-Peaks Challenge and the Celebrity Classic have joined forces to create the new event.

Organized primarily by the Mercy Cycling Team, the 2008 event will start three days after the Joe Martin stage race in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The Tour will be located primarily in Russellville – just 90 minutes from Fayetteville. These back to back events will enable the riders to participate in two quality stage races in the same state in the same week.
