Race Saved

Philadelphia's two casino companies reportedly put up the last-minute cash needed to save the city's annual professional bike race.

The Philadelphia Inquirer, quoting unidentified sources, says the SugarHouse and Foxwoods casinos have committed about $100,000 each in funding for the TD Bank Philadelphia International Cycling Championship.

This will be the 25th year for the 156-mile Manayunk bike race. It's considered the premier one-day pro bike race in the country.
