Race Rescheduled

Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, organizers have made the difficult but safest decision to cancel the 2020 Joe Martin Stage Race in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The race plans to return April 8 – 11, 2021.

The race, which had been rescheduled from its original date in April was also slated to hold a one-day, two-stage event on August 30th.  Organizers hoped that the Joe Martin Stage Race would be the first Pro Road Tour (PRT) to come back in 2020.  However, the impact of COVID-19 in Northwest Arkansas along with event and travel restrictions made it difficult for teams, athletes and the local community to participate.

“These decisions are difficult but public health and safety are always our primary concern,” said Race Director Bruce Dunn. “We are especially grateful to Experience Fayetteville and our local and national sponsors standing with us to continue in our goal of holding an international stage race.”

Dunn continued, “We are extremely grateful to the pro and domestic peloton for their patience and understanding and their willingness to find a path forward.  USA Cycling (USAC) and the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) were supportive of holding the event if we could meet local and state guidelines, but the conditions just weren’t safe for all concerned.”  

The Joe Martin Stage Race plans to return in April 2021, making it the 43rd year as an amateur stage race, 18 years on the PRT and six years on the UCI calendar.
