Beijing Cycling

Does anyone have a list of the people that will be road racing? I checked the official Beijing site and cant find anything.

That pic looks like an especially bad day on Tiananmen Square. Now, I'm no racer, but when I was there I rode a bike around every day for a month. Good luck to the poor Olympians.

The complaint was not against cyclists riding with masks -- the masks were distributed through official lines, and it was known that they would have them -- but rather that a cycling team got off the plane and walked into the airport wearing the masks. They wore the masks when entering the city, in a situation where masks were not needed, as a statement or protest.
