East Troy Cycling Classic

On Friday, June 17th 2022 @ 11:10AM

The largest competitive cycling event in the United States, the Tour of America’s Dairyland, will make its eighth stop in East Troy on Friday, June 17.

    The East Troy Cycling Classic begins at 11:10 a.m. with nearly nine hours of high-energy professional cycling around the East Troy Village Square and nearby streets.

    “ToAD has differentiated itself by evolving into a community-wide festival that happens to have cycling throughout the day,” said Vanessa Lenz, Executive Director of the East Troy Area Chamber of Commerce, which hosts the event. “East Troy is day 2 on the 11-day race series and our schedule represents everything our local community has to offer.”

    Spectators may watch the cyclists whiz by once every three minutes from anywhere on the racecourse, which will feature plenty of food, drink and entertainment. Admission is free.

    “We are planning to add to the action with activities, food vendors, an ESPN radio broadcast, cabana parties and more. Many surrounding businesses will get in on the action with race day specials and bike themed items,” Lenz said.

 

NEW ROUTE

    East Troy will see a brand-new route this year with the East Troy race start and finish will on the west side of the square (in between East Troy House and East Troy Brewery) and course heading west on Main, south on Clark and east on Union Street back to the square.

    About 500 cyclists from around the country and abroad will ride laps around the half-mile course between 11:10 a.m. and 8:15 p.m. for timed races that range from 40 to 90 minutes.

    The race will shut down streets on the course, but local businesses will remain open. Parking will be available in the Chester Byrnes lot, 2031 Division St., and a golf cart shuttle will be available.

 

THE LOWDOWN

    The title sponsor for the East Troy Cycling Classic is the Dennis and Janice Klumb Family Foundation, which put up half of the bid fees to host the race. The East Troy Area Chamber of Commerce serves as the local host, with funding for the balance of the fees donated by other local and regional sponsors.

    ToAD 2022, which marks its “Lucky 13th” year, runs Thursday, June 16 through Sunday, June 26 and features criterium-style races daily in different Wisconsin communities.

    ToAD has become one of the most popular bike race series in the sport earning an outstanding reputation for delivering a world-class race experience for both participants and spectators.

    Each year, ToAD welcome nearly 1,000 unique pro and amateur racers from more than 40 U.S. states and 15 countries, averaging 450-500 daily.
