I have been trying to figure this out. They could set it up like horse racing or something. It would sure make the track a popular place for riders and other folks. But that's another matter...

I should have signed up for one of those fantasy cycling leagues. That would have been fun. Would have given me a really vested interest in hoping one guy wins. I guess it's better now cause I love cycling for the intrinsic reward, and all that esoteric stuff.
er, ever hear of Keirin? nmshirt
