The race normally takes place during May, but will happen from April 19-23 this year.

They say the USA Cycling and Pro Teams are running a series of races for the 2017 “Road Tour.” Events will be held in Arkansas, Alabama, and New Mexico. The dates change allows them to cut costs and travel between the races.

The Silver City Daily Press says the race had a near record number of riders last year, and they expect the same this year.
