Friday, June 7 - CIRCUIT RACE 
The midwest's fastest and most elite bike racers will open hostilities early with a circuit race. The hilly 7-mile course will be full of action as riders hope to be the first overall leader of the 2012 Tour of Galena. Men will do eight laps, women six.

Saturday, June 8 - TIME TRIAL 
No teammates. No drafting. Just a rider, a bike and a heart rate somewhere around 200 bpm. The time trial is cycling's "race of truth," but sometimes the truth hurts. This will be one of those times. Although the course is short, that just makes it more intense, and riders doing the full 6-mile course will have two climbs to contend with.

Saturday, June 8 - ROAD RACE 
After the time trial has warmed them up, racers will tackle our queen stage, a challenging road race through the picturesque hills north of town, ending with an exciting sprint down Commerce Street. The 22-mile course includes several steep and long climbs. Riders will have to be on their toes, as any one of them could invite an attack from their rivals – or an attack of their own!

Sunday, June 9 - CRITERIUM 
For the Tour of Galena's final stage, the action comes to the bustling, historic streets that make Galena such a popular destination. Racers will zip around corners, elbow to elbow, at more than 30 mph as they fight for final position. And since today's results will decide the final overall winners, every position counts.
