It may have just wrapped up a few months ago, but the state has already announced its plans for the next Tour of Missouri. The event will kick off on September 7-13, 2009. It will be the third year for the event and it’s been upgraded to the highest status from the international governing body for the sport of cycling. That puts the Tour of Missouri on par with other professional stage races across the world.
So far, the route host cities haven’t been announced for next year. The 2008 event attracted an estimated 434,000 spectators and wound through the Ozarks including stages in Springfield and Branson.
