The 2016 TDF is officially cancelled!
The race director, Revolution Racing Cycling team, and the many volunteers and sponsors, would like to thank everyone involved with this event for the past 9 years. The race will not occur in 2016. There are many reasons, and we are not sure what the future holds. It was a difficult decision, but one that ultimately had to be made. Check these sites for more info on our other races. As of now we plan to still put on the Big Bad Wolf http://bikeracingintricities.blogspot.com/, and https://www.facebook.com/BigBadWolfCX. And we are currently seeking alternate events for upcoming years.
Special thanks goes out to Sheila Stamiris from the City of Frankenmuth and Linda Kelly from Zehnder’s. These two amazing people made this race possible and were integral to the success. Without them, their organizations, and their staff, it wouldn’t have been one of the most successful races in Michigan history.
More thanks to long time race organizers and volunteers Steve Weckle and Paul Rytlewski, and many of the long term volunteers who gave countless hours toward the event. These guys and many others deserve the best for their roles and contributions. The list of volunteers goes on, and there is only so much time to thank you all. So, THANK YOU!
The Tour de Frankenmuth was Michigan’s largest USAC road cycling race for the last 5 years!
Participants rated the weekend a great success.
“Great Race! We traveled from Missouri, and will be back next year. It is a really well run race! Thanks”
“Thanks to you and everyone involved for putting together this race. Truly an enjoyable event.”
“Thanks for another great race. TDF was my first race ever last year, and I was glad to return this year.”
“This race has had the most participants of any Michigan Road Race in the last 10 years!”
Former Race Director Steve Weckle noted “this event is a great success because of all the support we receive from the community, the volunteers and of course the participants. I hope everyone tells their friends and marks their calendar for the 2014 Memorial Day weekend.”
