MO PRO Shifts into High Gear

 

Get ready for the Missouri Professional Cycling Series, a three-day competitive cycling extravaganza across three STL neighborhoods, starting Friday, May 11.

The LOOP de LOOP Grand Prix kicks off the race weekend, featuring a course through the Delmar Loop, at dusk. A brand-new addition to the weekend, this course features two long straightaways and a slightly uphill finish, with $5,000 in cash prizes awarded to devoted cyclists.

The central attraction of the weekend is Tour de Grove, a full day of competitive cycling and outdoor activities on Saturday, May 12, bringing the skilled cyclists from across the country to experience St. Louis’ beauty and splendor firsthand. In addition to being the highest-paying single-day race in Missouri, it is also the only race in the region to appear on the prestigious USA Cycling National Criterium Calendar (NCC), and includes a full day of free events, a 5K run and kids’ races and street sprints in the evening.

The final stage of the event is the Dutchtown Classic, a course in one of South St. Louis’ fastest-growing communities. The entire weekend promises to bring competitive excitement, fun fitness events and a wealth of professional cycling talent to St. Louis. Register and find more information at tourdegrove.com.
