Second Chance to Watch Bell’s Iceman Cometh Challenge on 9&10 News
Steve Brown, the founder of the race, says the race is starting to get National publicity and it is no secret why.
With about 5,000 racers and nearly every state represented, it is a far cry from your average mountain bike race.
The race was televised on CBS sports, and for Brown, that is a sign of how far cycling has come.
“That is the fun part, to be able to put cycling on television and to sort of compete with those ball sports,” he says. “Because there are a lot of people mountain biking recreationally—and road bikes—and really we don’t get our fair share of television coverage.”
If you didn’t get the chance to see it the first time around, the race will be televised again this Sunday at 2 p.m. on 9&10 News.
“The show is really fun,” Brown says. “There are a lot of stories about the cyclists. It shows some of the terrain that we encounter throughout the race, and it also shows the excitement in the size of the crowd at the finish line the riders all get to experience.”
Be sure to tune in Sunday, Dec. 2, to catch the race. It is truly a race like no other. For more information, head to iceman.com.
