Tour of Elk Grove prize list entices strong field

The Alexian Brothers Tour of Elk Grove is not only a valuable stop on USA Cycling’s National Racing Calendar but also one of the most lucrative stage races in the United States of America. Karl Menzies (UnitedHealthcare-Maxxis) will no doubt want to defend his title and sprint home the $118,000 dollars on offer at the three-stage race, set to take place from July 30-August 1 in Elk Grove out side Chicago, Illinois.

“There are very few domestic UCI Continental teams that skip the Alexian Brothers Tour of Elk Grove,” said event manager Steven Hansen. “On that metric alone that makes us an important race. The amount of money on the line is huge by almost any standard. That has helped put us near the top of most teams’ ‘must-do’ races on the NRC.”
