For the next 10 days, my time is going to be consumed with the Great River Energy Bicycle Festival featuring the Nature Valley Grand Prix.
Pro bike racing only comes to Minnesota once a year, so if you’re in the area, come and check it out June 11-15.
That’s 53 seconds of action from a five day, six-stage race in which 140 men and 145 men are scheduled to participate in this year. So stay tuned for updates – or perhaps a summary depending on my available time during the next week and a half. Thrills and spills. Men and women in lycra going on bikes at 40 miles per hour. How could summer in Minnesota get any better?
