|Okay, he's not in mortal danger or anything, but the guy needs a hand. The HealthNet cycling team and Gord Fraser are being barred from USPRO Championships in Philadelphia on Sunday and the San Francisco Grand Prix in August an unrelated two-year-old legal dispute.
Bell Helmets has launched a "Free Gord Fraser" campaign-with protest t-shirts and a grassroots post card mailer-to try and get Fraser and the team reinstated. Read the whole story at http://vn1.velonews.com/news/fea/4055.0.html.
Gord is a hard-working, talented rider, and leaving him and his team out of these races is messed up.

|By letting a legal conflict get personal the organizers are dissing a new US based sponsor. How STUPID is that? It's not like US companies are lining up to sponsor teams that don't have Lance Armstrong on them and compete the TdF. A new sponsor steps up and these yo-yos screw them. So Health Net gets out as fast as they contractually can and who can blame them when the state of the "sport" here in the US is that a race sponsor denies entry to the US championships to a US team?|| |
