SEPT. 3 | SUBWAY STAGE 2 | COUNTY OF GRANDE PRAIRIE
171.6 KM | 11:40 AM – 3:48 PM
The second stage is a looped course in the County of Grande Prairie that starts and finishes at Evergreen Park. As the race heads through Wembley, riders will pass by the unique Phillip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum, one of the world’s foremost on-site paleontology centres which has been named by architecture magazine Azure as one of the ‘Top 10 Projects to Watch’ internationally. The first 130 kilometres are primarily flat and the final 40 kilometres feature two 20 kilometre loops with a 1.5 kilometre climb out of the scenic Wapiti river valley; the first Go Auto King of the Mountain jersey points of 2015 will be awarded at those climbs. These hills offer a great launch pad for late attacks. Can a climber breakaway and steal the day, or will the flat last 8 kilometres bring the sprinters back in time.
Listen to Ryan Anderson of Optum Pro Cycling presented by Kelly Benefit Strategies and winner of the Pomeroy Inn & Suites Top Canadian Jersey at the 2013 & 2014 Tour of Alberta presented by ATB Financial talk about Stage 2.

About the County of Grande Prairie
The County of Grande Prairie is located approximately 460 kilometres North West of Edmonton and 160 kilometres East of the Rocky Mountains, which can be seen to the West on a clear day. We are part of the Great Plains Region of North American and contain 2,264 square miles of farmland, rivers, forests, hamlets, villages, towns and a major city.
We offer long summer days with a flurry of activities for anyone, such as river boating, camping, golfing, biking, street festivals, parades, concerts, hiking and day trips to historic or point of interest sights just to name a few. Winter gives us an abundance of snow for activities like sledding, tobogganing, skiing, skating, ice fishing, and hockey.
No matter what your preference is you can find your space at a crowded sand bar at the river, a quite walk at the Kleskun hills or Dinosaur trails, a nice evening dining experience or a night out dancing.
Just west of Grande Prairie, Saskatoon Island Provincial Park has been a popular place for the community since the 1930s when it became one of Alberta’s first provincial park. Find out more about provincial parks and campgrounds at albertaparks.ca.
