The Tour of the Catskills is one of America’s premier cycling events held in the heart of the Catskill Mountains in scenic Upstate New York. Held over 3 days, beginning with a Friday individual time trial, and two epic road stages on Saturday and Sunday in Greene and Ulster Counties, the event captures the essence of the history, culture, and scenery of the Catskill Mountains. The addition of the famed ‘Devil’s Kitchen Climb’ in 2010 established the event as one of America’s toughest cycling events for amateurs and professionals alike.
Organizers of the 2011 Tour of the Catskills are proud to announce that at least 22 States will be represented at this weekend’s 4th annual road cycling event in the Catskills Mountains of New York State. Nearly 700 racers are currently registered and more than 800 are expected by the start of the event on Friday in Hunter.
The 3-day race begins on Friday, August 5 with the 12-mile, Stage 1 Individual Time Trial in Hunter.
The Catskills is also considered one of the toughest events in the US, thanks to the inclusion of the Devil’s Kitchen climb in 2010. (Devils Kitchen was featured in the Tour de Trump in the 1990’s.)
