July Brings the Fourth Annual Tour de Bozeman

This summer cyclists from across the United States and Canada will converge in Bozeman to ride in the fourth annual Tour de Bozeman.  The race is a two day event from July 7-8. There are three stages of the competition that include some mountain riding in Bridger Canyon and a time trial in the Bridgers.

This year the Tour will begin with the Battle for Battle Ridge.  This piece of the race will cover 40 to 70 miles of pavement and ample elevation gain.  After the battle portion is completed, the riders will participate in a time-trial course beginning in the Gallatin Gateway.

On Sunday, the cyclists will travel along the Gallatin River on a fairly flat road leading them to the criterium at Beall Park in downtown Bozeman. The awards will be given at the Beall Center following the end of the race. Registration for the race has been up since May 1 and will remain open until July 4.

The cost is $95 per cyclist for the full two-day event, or $25 per event. For more information visit www.tourdebozeman.com.
