A grueling six day race that attracts 120 of the world's best cyclists will be pedalling through Rocky Mountain House this summer.
 
At a recent town council meeting, Councillors voted to become a host city for the third leg of the Tour of Alberta.
 
Race organizers appeared before council in February, asking council if they would be interested in hosting the race, but a $100,000 fee had some councillors concerned.
 
Since then, the Town has been able to negotiate the host fee down to $10,000 thanks to help from corporate sponsorships.
