The best riders in the North America are showing us the impossible at the Toronto International Bicycle Show Supercross this weekend. The $8,000 prize purse is attracting the likes of Freeride Pro - Wade Simmons, Dirt Jump Specialist - Adam Strieby, and we have heard that several of the World's Top BMX riders will be racing. Last year Adam pulled a 360, followed up with a successful back flip!
This year's new track is expanded with a four person start, a larger 11,000 square foot track, more dirt and bigger jumps. On site registration is still available for the dirt jumping, bmx, and mountain bike racing. More information on this event can be found on our website at www.chicoracing.com .
See what 100 charged up riders can do at the Toronto Bicycle Show this weekend March 1, 2, 3 at the National Trade Centre, CNE.
On Sunday February 25th, Dominique Rollin won Pace Bend in Texas (see Daily News: February 24/02 11:00 pm EST - Texas Report, Teams 2002, Euro Results) Jeanne Garde sent us this photo of Dominique as he crossed the line. Win!

Vandenbroucke Cycling Career Over?
It appears that the cycling career of Frank Vandenbroucke is all but over after police found a cache of illegal and banned drugs while searching his home. The list of drugs include EPO, morphine, clenbutérol and other unknown substances. The search was instigated when police stopped Vandenbroucke's personal physician for speeding and found a large quantity of amphetamines, which the doctor said belonged to Vandenbroucke, in the car . Vandenbroucke is likely to be arrested for being in possession of forbidden products (drugs such as as morphine are illegal in Belgium). Sainz has already been arrested by the Belgian police.
Domo-Farm Frites announced that it had terminated Vandenbroucke's contract following the announcement.
