For road cycling I think the course could be tough as nails. A pretty grueling onslaught of neverending, steep, short, roller-coaster hills. Blue Mound State Park is probably the prettiest finishing area in the Midwest. Love it.
Bringing the MTB races to the Madison area is awesome as well. I can't say I'm completely thrilled about Tyrol. There hasn't been active trails there since a collegiate race about 9 years ago. My only hope is that is Chicago's bid is accepted and Tyrol hosts the MTB race that a trail network is established and remains open to the public. The last thing I want to see is another "race day only" venue.
Would have been cool to have road cycling and mountain biking at Blue Mound.....
