The International Tour de Toona is the largest stage race in the USA. It is owned by the participating communities in central Pennsylvania. This year's event runs from July 26 through August 1 throughout Blair, Cambria, Bedford and Somerset counties in Pennsylvania.

The event draws tens of thousands of racers, support personnel and spectators and is one of the region's consistently largest tourism magnets. With a local economic impact estimated at more than $4 million annually, this is a significant tourist and racing event for hte community and state. 

In addition to competitive races for men and women, there are social and entertainment events throughout the duration of the race.

In 2004, there will be a specially-sponsored prize for women - provided by Smith Transport, the Move - Up woman award is given each of the seven days of the race to the female cyclist that shows the biggest improvement in point standing. 

"Smith Transport's support of this community-owned event demonstrates the kind of broad-based support that enables The International Tour de 'Toona to grow year after year," race director Lawrence Bilotto said. "On behalf of the thousands of central Pennsylvania volunteers who work all year long to make this event happen, I want to express my gratitude to Smith Transport."

Company Representative Tammy Roudabush said that Smith Transport has made its home in the Blair County area for over 25 years. "Our business, as we have grown has expanded to many other areas of the country, but we have kept our corporate headquarters here in the Altoona area. For our continued success, we feel it is important to help support events that showcase what this area has to offer tourists from other areas of the country for an event like The International Tour de Toona," she said.
