Tour de Georgia in Jeopardy

Atlanta, GA ( - Tour de Georgia, while not a mountain bike event, is one of the major bike races in the US that many people in the southeast attend. Ford has declined to renew their substantial monetary contribution as title sponsor which puts the race in jeopardy.

The current scheduled dates of 16 April to 22 April is at risk of being canceled if the organizers of the race cannot fill the gap in funding left by Ford pulling out their title sponsorship - a six figure contribution. The organizers have a huge gap to fill to make the race happen but they are very optimistic that the race will continue as planned.
