Santa Cruz: Yes to Tour of California

The Santa Cruz city council voted yesterday in favor of signing a "host city agreement" for the Tour of California 2010.

Last week, the city manager added Tour of California host city preparations to a list of items to cut because of budget issues. Cycling enthusiasts sent letters and showed up to the council meeting showing their support for the event.

Good to hear.

Much like the Tour of Minnesota, one has to think that the races bring more to the business in the region than they cost the local government to host.

I really hope to get out and see some of the race next year.
