18 million soccer players, and we still have a long way to go before we win the world cup.

It looks like that is only the riders with USA cycling licenses. There are a bunch of other state and regional organizations (like Oregon Bike Racing Assoc). They ain't going to add up to 18 million though.

Last time I checked I was 950th in the USA out of 1471 35+ TT ranked riders. But I slipped off, a couple of my TTs never made it to the rankings in 2008 because of cancellation (High Point) and organizer incompetence (Sandy Hook). 645/1045 in the 45+ TT rankings. That's just amazing. How the F can anyone possibly be slower than me? I'll never quite grasp that.

All you have to do to remedy that is complete one TT that reports back to the USCF.

TTs rock. It is a safe way for older cyclists to compete, no real crash danger, no getting dropped, etc. I like it.

Now if I could only get my friggin TT bike to fit me, I'd have something.

In my opinion, there is no real crash danger in a TT. Not for me at any rate. I don't know about anybody else.

Go to a triathlon and camp out in the first corner with beer and chips. The dentists just pile up their p4s one after another.

I have very nearly talked myself into getting a license for 2009. I will be added to the ranks of those slower than Pcad.

USC will not accept your application if they see you ride in Hi-Viz. There is still time to change.
