SPORTS, AUGUST 24TH

CYC–USA PRO CYCLING CHALLENGE
GUNNISON, Colo. – The second stage of the USA Pro Cycling
Challenge will take the field 130.2 miles Wednesday (Aug. 24) from
Gunnison to Vail, Colo. The stage includes the ascents of
Cottonwood Pass and Monitor Pass, both situated at more than 12,000
feet. Stage 2 is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m., with an estimated
finish between 3:30-4:30 p.m.

FBN–ON FOOTBALL–TIM TEBOW
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Nobody with the Denver Broncos is questioning
Tim Tebow’s character or work ethic, just his readiness. The
Broncos have concluded he’s not ready to start in the NFL, but that
doesn’t mean they’re ready to cut ties with him, either.

ATH–Worlds-Hobbling Americans
DAEGU, South Korea – The world championships are supposed to
provide a peek of what’s in store for next summer, when things
really matter. Yet some of America’s biggest track stars have been
reduced to spectators. Tyson Gay is sidelined with a surgically
repaired hip and Jeremy Wariner out with a torn ligament in his
left foot. The clock’s ticking on the 2012 London Olympics and the
Americans aren’t exactly in prime position or health.

BBN–ASTROS-ROCKIES
DENVER – The Colorado Rockies go for a sweep Wednesday with
Aaron Cook on the mound against lefty Wandy Rodriguez of the
Houston Astros.
