Governor Wilder was very pleased with UCI but hopes the benefits will be shared by local businesses. More from his interview on WTVR Channel 6 can be found here.

“Gov. Wilder said he was not a part of any planning prior to the championships and is unaware of what the city’s expectation was regarding the race. He said he wishes for Virginia to be seen as “more progressive, forward-thinking than others may have imagined” after the race finishes.

“Positive, bottom line,” Wilder said when asked what impression he wished fans outside of Richmond have once the race event concludes this Sunday. “But, I also want the people in Richmond to know that this was likely positive for them as well.””
