SURPRISE PARTY: City of Monterey Communications & Outreach Manager Anne McGrath said that the city, which will host a stage, "didn't put in any application." She added, "We have not been contacted at all by anyone from (the tour) about this. ... This is the first that the city has heard of it." But Monterey County Convention & Visitors Bureau Communications Coordinator John David Van Kirk said that race organizers "contacted the bureau about returning to Monterey." He added, "They came to us asking if were were interested in participating. We let them know that we had no dollar amount or personnel that we could put towards it and they basically came back saying that they are very interested in coming here and they would work with us and the city to cover the financial burden of it" (MONTEREY HERALD, 11/6).
