Does anyone know what happened to Matt Kelly, the guy who won junior worlds (cyclocross) in 1999. He seems to have disappeared. Is he still racing? I hope nothing bad happened to him.

a few issues back, he is not even riding at this point. There was a story about the promising young athletes (many of whom were former world champions)from the past few years and how many of them went to live at the OTC facility in Colorado Springs and shortly after made a disappearing act. I think the author was trying to make a connection with the 35+ hours training weeks and the disappearance of the athletes who participated in these intense programs. The author spoke with Matt's father because Matt was not available (or maybe not interested) to speak with him. His father said he could not even get him to go out for a bike ride anymore.

The articles discussed Matt Kelly, Jess Swiggers, and had an interview with Ceclia Potts. I think it was an issue from October 2002 or so.
Thanks for the info. sad as it is. nm.jhr
