Sydor On Cheerios Box
Mountain biker Alison Sydor will appear on boxes of multi-grain Cheerios during the Olympics. This is Sydor's second appearance on a cereal box - she was on Frosted Flakes during the Atlanta Olympics.
Specialized Ditches Downhillers
Specialized has announced that it is going to discontinue sponsorship of its pro downhill team at the end of this season. Among the riders affected are Tara Llanes, David Vasquez, Oscar Saiz and Kirt Voreis. The cross-country team will continue.
Olympic Road Team Update
We have no further word on Eric Wohlberg's condition after his crash at Altoona (wrist and possible collarbone). However, the CCA is monitoring the situation, and says that at this time they feel confident Eric will be able to compete in Sydney. Since it is an injury, the CCA also has the ability to substitute an alternate up to the last minute, according to Kris Westwood at the CCA. At this time there is no alternate designated.
Tour de 'Toona
We just received a telephone call from Dave Cathcart of Team Elita, who was happy to report that team leader Sarah Ulmer has just won today's 4th stage (130 km circuit race) after the team shut down attempts by Saturn and Timex to break it open. Alison Sydor (Timex) was second in the sprint. Ulmer, because of a 15 second time bonus, has extended her lead over second place Lyne Bessette (Saturn) to 22 seconds.
