Worlds In Hamilton
It appears that the Road Worldâ€šs Bid for Hamilton in 2001 is continuing to gather momentum. There will be an official launch for the bid in Hamilton on May 13th. In addition to the organizing committee, a delegation from the UCI will be in attendance. Canada will be competing against Austria, Colombia, Portugal and Spain for the rights to the Worlds. We will be at the launch and will report back to you later that evening.
Mountain Biking on OLN
We received an interesting telephone call from a producer at OLN (Outdoor Life Network) yesterday. Seems that there may be some interest in putting together a series on mountain biking in Canada. However, he has to pitch it to his bosses. We suggested that he put a query up on the Forum asking for feedback on what Canadians would like to see, where top places to ride are, etc. So, give him your feedback!
A bunch of new Classified postings went up today, so be sure to check them out. We will be pulling some of the older ones shortly.
