Beats Nine-to-Five

Hamilton-born cyclist Brett Tivers has won the Fond du Lac Bicycling Gran Prix Men Pro ½ in Wisconsin, a 9-minute race around the city’s downtown streets. “It’s a good sport,” Tivers said about cycling. “It makes you … healthy. You’re outside all the time. Look at us, we’re from Australia and New Zealand, and we get to see the world. What else can you ask for, really? It beats working anyway.” Tivers earned $1 for winning a prime — an intermediate sprint within the race — with about five laps left.
