Yellow, Green, White and Polka Dot Jerseys - Anyone?
The Tour of Alberta - Canada's Pro Cycling Festival is coming to Drumheller - September, 6, 2013. In anticipation of thousands of vistors and an international audience in the millions we need your help to ensure that over 130 elite athletes, 250 team support personal and our community make this a party to remember.
The race will feature many of the top elite cyclists in the world (yes many will have competeded in the Tour de France, Giro d'Italia, Vuelta a Espana, etc.) We are very fortunate to have been selected as a race-stage finish community - on the day of our stage - cyclists and their teams - 130 athletes and over 250 team support stafff will be arriving in Drumheller (from Strathmore) for what we expect will be a fantastic finish. The race requires a great number of volunteers - and i'd like to request that you participate in the process by focusing your energy on the recruitmetn of seniors as key volunteers for this event. Whats really exciting about this opportunity - is that the race will be televised internationally - in Canada we will watch live on Rogers Sportnet, with a prime-time rebroadcast nation-wide. The same commentators that follow the Tour de France will be announcing the TOA (Tour of Alberta) race - so you could say that we will have a 3 hour commercial that promotes Drumheller and area along the way.
To give you an idea of the size / scope and impact of the race, please take a look at the following (very long presentation link).
So be a part of the action, in support of one of the biggest sporting events in Drumheller's 100 years of history.
We are looking for volunteers to provide security, hospitality and race support for the event.
