    Authors Note: I don’t normally like to get involved in personal disputes but i felt the Hellyer name should be tossed around with more gravitas.  I know Newell is working on a rebuttal, i just couldn’t wait long enough.  Remember TVC is Friday, June 11-Saturday, June 12, 6 PM till close, at Hellyer Velodrome...

    CX Nats – Bend

    by  • December 17, 2009 • too random • 2 Comments

    Bad News First: In a well meaning attempt to provide men and women equal opportunities at the Olympic’s the UCI may cut  the Points Race, Madison, and Pursuit from Olympic events.  While the proposals adds Omnium this effectively kills endurance racing at the Olympic level.  With the previous elimination of the Kilo this leaves...
