#PhilBikes100: Scouting the Big Dam Bridge 100 Course


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - With less than a week to go until the Big Dam Bridge 100, THV 11's Phil Buck went out Monday and drove the entire 100-mile course for the ride. When he left he was already nervous, when he returned he was terrified from what he saw.

"The overall elevation change is about identical, just a couple hundred feet difference. It's just that it's a little bit more condensed this year into 2 climbs versus a whole bunch of little climbs," said Big Dam Bridge 100 event director Fred Phillips. "It's a winding climb for the 100-mile road but the last ¾ or mile of getting up to the top of Wye [Mountain] and going over towards Little Italy, that one you got to press the pedals just a little bit."

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- "In today's society people don't take vacations, they take sportcations."

Since the city of Frisco, Texas opened Fieldhouse USA in 2009, their city has played host to more than 100 youth basketball and volleyball tournaments, generating millions of dollars in tourism for the local economy.

"It's huge. Big market…and it brings dollars. The younger kids bring mothers and grandmothers, aunts and uncles…"

Ron Crawford is a national officer with the amateur athletic union, one the country's largest non-profit volunteer sports organizations.

For years, Crawford has called on city leaders to invest in a multi-use, expansive basketball and volleyball gym.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Fans here in central Arkansas turning out in big numbers to start the season.

A big crowd showed at the Buffalo Wild Wings in west Little Rock, and they had plenty to get excited about through the first half. Fans are ready to give Coach Bret Bielema the benefit of the doubt based on how the team played today.

"You kinda wanna see the strengths we have, and we're kind of seeing that. We have a good defensive line and running backs are strong, so we love to come out and see the first game for sure," said Arkansas fan Toby Stephens.

The fans are finding some silver linings in the Hogs first game.
