Adirondack Daily Enterprise is reporting that NYDOT will be starting road repairs to the heavily damaged Route 73 between Lake Placid and Keene are set to being on May 1st. Hopefully those repairs will be completed by July 28th for Ironman Lake Placid. This should make a HUGE difference to the bike leg of race since this section of road is especially gnarly. The long downhill section from Cascade Lakes to Keene are especially dangerous with large cracks that can suck up a bike tire while doing 45+ MPH down this long downhill grade.
