ToC 2009: Bonus Stage

tocAs cities work to put together their bids for the 2009 Tour of California race, word has gotten out that the 2009 route will add a new stage. Santa Rosa is busy raising funds to secure their continued role in the race.

I don't know if Palo Alto will be submitting a bid, but their trouble raising funds for the 2008 race makes me think no. One of the big problems for host cities are the 'protected categories' of sponsorship, i.e. categories that would compete with the big sponsors. Among those protected categories are software, Web portal, and biotechnology, which covers just about everything in Palo Alto except the Children's Theater.
