2009 Tour of Missouri to finish in KC


VdVpodium 2009kit Team Garmin fans and midwestern cycling enthusiasts, take note: The 2009 Tour of Missouri route was just announced, and things are changing up a bit. Rather than starting in St. Joseph and finishing in St. Louis, the cyclists will begin in St. Louis on Sept. 7 and wrap things up Sept. 13 with a circuit race in Kansas City. After kicking things off in St. Louis for the first time, the tour travels from St. Genevieve to Cape Girardeau for Stage 2. The next two days of road racing take the teams from Farmington to Rolla, and then from St. James to Jefferson City. The individual time trial will take place in Sedalia for Stage 5, and Stage 6 goes from Chillicothe to St. Joseph. Sunday’s final stage will give Kansas City fans and Garmin employees a chance to see Team Garmin working to defend the title that Christian Vande Velde won in 2008.
