A planned stage race from Montreal, Quebec, to Boston, Massachusetts by way of Vermont and New Hampshire will have to wait at least another year.

Boston mayor Tom Menino announced the change in plans Wednesday, but said he's working to support the Montreal-Boston Tour in 2008. Organizers targeted early August for the race.

This year's Tour of Utah was cancelled, and the Tour of Georgia had funding problems, even as the Tour of California drew large crowds.

A fourth US tour, the Tour of Missouri, looks to be on track for September 11-16.

damn. I'm so bummed out by that news. I'll write the mayor and my city councilor a letter today telling them to get on it and get this thing done. I think it would be well received here in Boston in general, and personally I was chomping at the bit. The finish would have been a real blast.
