On Sunday, a field of 1,200 bicyclists ranging from preschoolers to senior citizens will participate in the 32nd Manhattan Beach Grand Prix, one of the oldest bicycle races in the nation.

Dallas Cowboy quarterback Troy Aikman is expected to be out six to 12 weeks after back surgery Saturday for a herniated disk, his neurosurgeon said. Robert Watkins, who performed the surgery in Los Angeles, said it would be safest for Aikman, the most valuable player in the Super Bowl, to stay out at least 12 weeks. "Six weeks would be absolutely the soonest he could return to a physical football situation," Watkins said.
