2013 Tour of Alberta: City Television to air documentary on Making the Tour
tour_of_alberta Edmonton, Alberta Canada … At 6:00 p.m. Monday, September 2, 2013, cycling fans and soon-to-be cycling fans will get a behind-the-scenes look at both what it takes to organize a major international sporting event like the 2013 Tour of Alberta, as well as what it takes to be able to compete in it.

Making the Tour is a 30-minute documentary produced by City Television in Edmonton that offers a unique look at what it takes to both plan – and compete – in Canada’s first major professional pro cycling stage race, the 2013 Tour of Alberta from September 3 to 8, 2013.

The program includes interviews with Tour of Alberta organizers, and representatives of the 10 communities involved in hosting the event in its inaugural year.

The program also includes the personal story of 20-year-old Kristopher Dahl, of Calgary, who earned a spot on one of the teams – Team SmartStop p/b Mountain Khakis – by winning the under 23 group in the 2013 Banff Lake Louise Bikefest in June 2013. Through interviews with Dahl and his family, cycling fans will see what is required in terms of training, commitment and determination to make it as a pro cyclist.

City’s Making the Tour airs on City Television in Edmonton and Calgary at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, September 2, 2013.
