DURANGO, Colo. (AP) -- A speed bump in Durango is getting the boot as the city prepares for the USA Pro Cycling Challenge.

City officials are afraid the asphalt strip heading down a mountain road could cause accidents as riders speed across Colorado later this month.

The Durango Herald says another speed bump will stay in place because it is on a straighter section of road and race officials say they can deal with it.

The race Aug. 20 to 26 will travel through a dozen host cities in Colorado, starting in Durango and ending in Denver.

    glad to hear something is going to be done with those nasty speed bumps. Maybe they could replace them with deep ditchs and tire spikes. What ever it takes to help out the gay parade of sprocketheads.
