City Asks for Bids to Fix Cycling Championship Potholes 

When Richmond plays host to the 2015 UCI World Road Cycling Championships, the race course won't — organizers hope — be riddled with pot holes.

Right now, it kind of is. But the city took the first steps toward fixing the problem this month when it asked contractors to bid on dozens of repaving projects on roads the international cyclists are expected to travel. Among the streets targeted for repair are 18th, 29th, Canal and Franklin.

Lee Kallman, a spokesman for the event, says organizers asked the city to prioritize the paving of streets likely to be included in the race course. The route will be finalized by the end of they year, he says. The race takes nine days that organizers describe as "cycling's pinnacle event."
