Tuesday Shorts 9/2

Vuelta
Bert tests leg on stage 9. Says new leg is 3.2556 watts faster according to Garmin Vector. Krash Froome loses a couple but the ITT is up next. Kingtana smiles...first facial expression of the year. Winner Anacona well...wins.

Tour of Britain
Sir Brad leads team at home tour. That is unless Krash Froome pulls out of the Vuelta today and decides to race the Tour of Britain.


Lake Fayetteville
City council votes today on Botanical Garden proposal. If approved the soft use trail will be re-routed. I've been told it could cost the city $300K. The money spent to re-route the existing trail seems like a lot. Is there not a better cheaper solution? You can attend the city council meeting tonight at 5:30 to here the discussion/vote or chime in. You can also email the council to find out more.
