CAMPUS IN THE LOOP FOR NATURE VALLEY PRO CYCLING RACE

UW-Stout helped put the wheels in motion June 16 for the fifth stage of the Nature Valley Bicycle Festival, one of the nation’s premier professional bike races.
 
The 95-mile men’s and 76-mile women’s road races began and ended on Main Street, including finishing criterium laps through and around campus. The race fields included several riders who were scheduled to compete in the Summer Olympics in London.
 
The event was hosted by the Greater Menomonie Area Chamber of Commerce, with the help of UW-Stout, the city, Dunn County and dozens of volunteers.
 
Organizers expect the event to return for a fourth year in 2013. For more information, go to www.naturevalleybicyclefestival.com.
