I fear that if this year's race is held at all, it will be on a course that's even less "interesting" than usual. It sucks that the city doesn't seem to want to embrace the event and use it to showcase their city. I've long said that they could have a route that really highlights many of the different neighborhoods, using more of the bridges and encompassing all four quadrants of the city. Those hopes appear to be long gone now. We might be left with 13 miles out HWY 30, turn around and 13 miles back.
