Bicycle racing in Branson? Professional Bicycle Racing?
Yes, you read it right. Stage 3 of the Tour of Missouri is a time trial in Branson, over roads that I have ridden. The Tour of Missouri is apparently the real deal, Team Discovery are the headliners, with all the big names. The Branson stage is September 13. Stage 2 is September 12 from Clinton to Springfield, which is aobut 125 miles. I will try to make it to the finish of that stage if I can sneak away from a training day in time.
I went to course marshal training for the Branson stage tonight. They are expecting tens of thousands of spectators. Versus will have TV coverage. I'm excited to see something like this live and in person. Reports and pics after the race.
