Organizers say the 2012 stage race will take place from Aug. 20 to Aug. 26. They said they are getting set to take official proposals for host cities in the state.

American Levi Leipheimer of Team RadioShack won this year’s race, which officials say was viewed by almost 1 million spectators.

“The field is wide open for which communities might be a host city in 2012,” said race CEO Shawn Hunter.
