Besides the circuit races in St. Louis and Kansas City, this year's race will include an individual time trial in Sedalia and four point-to-point road races — Ste. Genevieve to Cape Girardeau; Farmington to Rolla; St. James to Jefferson City; Chillicothe to St. Joseph.

Team rosters for the third Tour of Missouri race will be announced in late August.

Last month, the Tour of Missouri was upgraded by international and national federations for cycling as one of the top five ranked events outside Europe. It is one of only two such races in the U.S., with the other in California.
