"Came down here to Tulsa to three days of great racing. We just want to throw down with some of the best guys in the area and see what happens," Brooks said.

Crews have been hard at work keeping cyclists on the right course. A group from OSU Medical Center was manning one of the many first aid tents treating injuries.

"We hose them down, scrub 'em hard, bandage them up and send them back into the races. They're hardcore, they want to get back to it," said first aid worker Jenna Fogg.

Race fans were out in force, too.

"I mean, the fans really make the race. And so it's great to see everyone in Tulsa come out and support such a great event, and we look forward to giving them a great show," Brooks said.

There was a lot more going on downtown, at the same time.

It was First Friday Art Crawl time in the Brady District and the Tulsa Drillers are home all weekend, playing the Northwest Arkansas Naturals and the Springfield Cardinals. And just a few blocks away, The Lion King was in its second night of shows at the PAC.
