race. Started in Altoona, Pennsylvania in 1986 as a one day race, it has grown
to become the largest pro-am cycling event in North America, and #1 rated
women's race in the US.
The Race will see the top women and men competitors battling for their share
of the prize money. The race is a great opportunity for a vacation in the
heartland of America to see a top race and get a few miles of riding in the
beautiful Pennsylvania area.
