The Score

Posted on Tue, Sep 29, 2015 at 1:00 AM

+10 The UCI Road World Championships reach a spectacular conclusion Sunday, with dashing Slovakian cyclist Peter “Terminator” Sagan winning the world title. His victory dashed the hopes of many, especially when they realized he had a girlfriend.

+1 After crossing the finish line, Sagan tosses his helmet into the crowd, with the broadcast announcer declaring, “That’ll be worth about 100 grand in a few years.” That’s one lucky fan. All we got was a broken cowbell.

-2 Speaking of stars, what about this Bono quasi-lookalike? A man creates a stir during the race by posing with fans as the U2 star and declining to correct them about his true identity. He was spotted near Libby Hill Park, where the cobblestones have no name.

-4 Race organizers kick off a lively debate about race turnout, releasing an initial estimate that there were 645,000 spectators over 10 days of the event. Well, traffic cones, Port-a-Johns and trees count, right?

+1 And now, Richmond wonders: What’s next? A nap.
