    Yep... I picked Nijs and Bessette. Nijs because he's having such a great season, Bessette because I've never seen anyone so dominate a sport that they weren't going to take seriously.

    Today's additions I got the #1's and my photo vote got third. But you've got to love that fourth place photo I'm such a sucker for those Saturn girls in photo #11.

    Well... USPS is hardly a surprise, although I think Rabobank and Kelme were stronger teams. I picked orange. And though I picked Saturn for the women, Gas Team and Acca Due were more impressive from a Euro perspective.

    I find it interesting that there was a vote for Tammy Thomas in the "Best Male Track Rider" category...she was involved with male steroids, but come on, can we grow up here???

    Sarah Uhl got second in the "Best Female Track Rider" category! Hometown hero! My other hometown hero, Tanya Lindenmuth only got 12th though...my junior buddies even got on the list, Megan Long got 20th, and Larsen Staley got a vote, too!

    Do you really take the american Cyclo cross riders serious?
    I live in belgium and don't know ANY american rider...

    And in the poll i miss Bart Wellens on a top spot, and Van Santvliet

    The poll shows that americans are WAY TO PATRIOTIC these days...

    Cyclocross is growing in North America, but it's going to take time. Right now, it seems to have a lot of refugees from mountain biking who are fed-up with NORBA and the whole mountain bike scene. It's worse in canada, where we will not be sending a team to the Worlds', and where there was no womens' national championships because not enough racers showed up.

    On the other hand, Lyne Bessette's utter domination of the circuit this year will probably get more people interested in Canada. I know the FQSC [the body goverining cycling in Quebec] is planning to greatly expand its cyclocross season in 2002... so we'll see.

    There are some fine American and Canadian racers, though. Marc Gullickson, Tim Johnson and Pete Wedge would have a higher UCI ranking if North American races had more points. They may not be up to the level of a Nijs or Vervecken yet, but the sport is still young here, and it's growing.
