Item: Ironman Reroutes Course Away from Post Falls

Issue: Ford Ironman set to pedal north: Bike course in Hayden zips past final hurdle/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: "The new course will be hillier, but then you can let go on the downhill and won't have to slow down any," Coeur d'Alene's Bill Travis said Tuesday. "I think it will be a lot better." Travis called the Post Falls route "boring." Riders said they won't miss the tight, technical turns of Riverview Drive, where multiple accidents have occurred, the wooden ramp over the railroad tracks and the thin Centennial Trail.

Question: Will Post Falls regret that it lost the Ironman route (possibly as a result of its complaints about police overtime reimbursement)?
