The secret pro at cycling tips said it. Paul Kimmage wrote about it in his book. So is it really the case?
I have never been a spectator to such events and I wonder, for those who have attended before, how "good" or "realistic" these shows (if it is true that the winning order is fixed) are? Do a lot of spectators know that they are fixed? I suppose it's not as obvious as those wrestlings on TV, but do people pay their ticket to see it in similar mentality?
