When a sponsor pulls out this late in the prep-game there isn’t much you can do.
Monroe Park will not host a designated fan zone during the UCI 2015 Road World Championships despite plans to the contrary and tens of thousands of dollars in city expense to improve the space.
A sponsor that loosely agreed to underwrite the celebration space in the Fan District switched gears in recent weeks, according to officials with Richmond 2015, the organization putting on the event.
Don’t worry though Monroe Park is still going to be a prime spot to watch the The Big Bike Race™ and they’ll even be port-a-potties.
