Athens News publisher predicts Great Bicycle Race will be disappointing
(2008-03-18)
(WOUB) - The "First Annual Athens Great Bicycle Race" will not be great at all.

That's the prediction of Athens News publisher Bruce Mitchell.

Mitchell was race director of the Athens Criterium bike race for several years and he says the promoter of this new race will not produce a good event.

Mitchell says he predicts people will be disappointed with the Athens Great Bicycle Race under the present plan.

Mitchell made his comments as Athens City Council gave first reading to an ordinance which would close certain streets for the proposed race.
