March 21, 2024

Rumors regarding financial struggles had been flying for some weeks, but today, race director Bruce Dunn confirmed that the Joe Martin Stage Race (JMSR), the longest-held stage race in America, will not be held in 2024.

In addition to being the longest amateur stage race in the country, the Arkansas-based event has an esteemed pro history. This year would have marked the event’s 22nd anniversary on the USA Cycling Pro Road Tour (PRT) calendar and 10th year on the UCI’s Americas Tour. CW
