Outstanding job under extreme duress by the officials, race crew and city. As the world watched, they made the right calls when it mattered.
You should an e-mail, to Louisville's mayor. That event and park will need all the support it can get, when the majority of residents will never understand "Why do we support cycling?".

Louisville is a great city. I used to be down there, once a week.

The couch monster got me yesterday. Big ole white flakes fell outta the sky till noon-1PM and with the (poor) level of driving skills around here, I didn't want to risk it.

I DID go play UW Hockey last nite. Small practice for some bizarre reason.

Someone in CO is thinking, and it ain't the town leaders of Blackhawk, CO:
"We're not saying you can't enter town, you just have to dismount your bike and walk ... through it," said Mike Copp, Black Hawk City Manager, "We feel strongly about this."

Seems they passed a law in 09 saying 'no bikes allowed.' ...which is OK according to CO law IF a bike trail is less than 450' away.

Most recent news Stupid rule got overturned.

Now, having been thru there, I can see where the town is coming from. The town itself is pretty farging small, with houses/buildings built right up onto the road itself (or vice versa) and lots of traffic 'cause of the casino(s). HOWever, if you feel that strongly about it, at least have the courtesy to follow the rules. I doubt too many people would object too strenuously to a bike path around the backside of the casino(s) there if it gets em away from the busses bringing gamblers in and out of Denver.

I'm gonna say this one's likely to be a pyrrhic victory in the long run.

Rep. Brattin is now working on creating a bill to ban bicyclists from certain roads in Missouri, based on his belief that bicyclists should not be allowed on roads like Highway 150. We talked with Rep. Brattin's staff during our visit to Jefferson City Tuesday. Brattin had a bill drafted to require bicycles to be inspected, registered, and display a special bicycle license plate. There would be special requirements for bicyclists under the age of 16.

Stupid never seems to sleep. Ya gotta keep an eye on it or else things like the Blackhawk bike ban and this MO thing happen.

Wish it was otherwise, but c'est la vie

I just got back from 1:20 on the FTB on the '4 dirt roads loop.' Maintaining zone 2 is tough going downhill! Uphill? No worries.

Great. Nothing like paying attention to what is truly important to the sport.

So much for cleaning up the doping mess.
