United Texas Tour to Support Survivors of Cancer

Hundreds of enthusiastic cyclists, community leaders and cancer survivors converged on the Hyatt Regency Dallas at Reunion today, to celebrate the announcement by United Supermarkets and Market Street of the first-ever United Texas Tour planned for the fall of 2005.

The professional cycling tour is scheduled to be the longest multi-stage race in the United States, and will pass through more than 50 Texas cities in which United Supermarkets and Market Street currently operate stores. The race is a fully sanctioned event by USA Cycling, the official governing body for professional cycling competitions in the United States.

As one of very few sanctioned events in America, the United Texas Tour can expect to attract many of the world’s best national trade teams and top Division I professional racers to Texas. Set at $175,000, the race will also feature the richest purse of its kind in America.

The Tour will being in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex area and for ten days will pass along the Red River through Wichita Falls, through the rugged and scenic Palo Duro Canyon near Amarillo, the high plains of Lubbock and the Big Country of Abilene on its way back to the Metroplex.
