Nature Valley Grand Prix bike race underway
The Nature Valley Grand Prix Pro Stage Bike Race is underway in locations across Minnesota.
Executive Director David LaPorte says nearly 300 cyclists from around the world are competing in the five day schedule of events, including last year's male and female winners Tom Zirbel and Carmen Small, who have returned to defend their titles.
LaPorte says spectators can watch the races as they wind through St. Paul, Cannon Falls, Minneapolis, Stillwater, and Menomonie, Wisconsin. A schedule of events and race maps can be found at nature-valley-biciyle-festival.com
