Governor Jim Doyle helps make the case for Chicago to host the 2016 Summer Olympics.
The Governor met on Monday with members of the International Olympic Committee, which is reviewing Chicago's bid to host the summer games. If the city is selected, Wisconsin would host several cycling events, such as a road cycling race that starts in Madison and a mountain biking course at Tyrol Basin.
Governor Doyle says the committee seemed impressed by what those courses would look like, their level of difficulty, and the ability to televise the races.
The UW-Madison would also host cycling athletes during the games. Doyle says the committee wanted to make sure the campus has the facilities necessary to meet their demands, including access to special food needs and training facilities.
A decision on Chicago's bid is expected in the fall.
