Janesville Gran Prix a chance to showcase the city’s new Town Square

EXCERPTS FROM GAZETTEXTRA.COM: Hey, Tour of America’s Dairyland, can we do this again next year? Janesville can put on a pretty good bike race. The Town Square Gran Prix was a showcase event for the city’s Town Square and revitalized downtown. It should be even better once all the construction cones have been removed.

Cyclists, besides a few quibbles about the rough ride over the Milwaukee Street bridge, praised the course and the locale.  And hundreds of spectators cheered heartily as packs of riders hummed through downtown Janesville. Unless the city decides it doesn’t want to host again, the Gran Prix will be back next summer. 

“I saw a different Janesville that day,” SAID race chairman Paul Murphy of the Janesville Velo Club. “It was really neat standing on the stage and looking down Milwaukee Street and seeing nothing but umbrellas. People came prepared to stay. They stayed through the grisly weather.” Read the full article here.
