Save the Tour of Missouri

Scott Moninger - (c) Ken Conley

Where else can you see lines of MoDoT trucks protecting riders in a time trial? Add to that a prime cut of teams contending -- Astana, Garmin, Saxo Bank, Quick Step, Cervelo, Liquigas, Columbia, and more -- and it becomes all the more surprising that the state of Missouri is now freezing $1.5M in funds that are necessary for the race to be held this year. Perhaps someone should whisper to the Missouri state legislature that Lance will be there.

Clearly the US cannot suffer the loss of many more races, especially the top class stage races (Tour de Georgia, Tour of Missouri).
