    They do this same thing in Long Beach, CA and it’s not only wildly popular, but having lived there they do a real good job of making it as if the race wasn’t there and completely transforming it into a great venue. Before I get bashed, which I’m sure I will anyway, I was against the Olympics but, I’ve been to one of these city events first hand and they could be well run.
