Heh, tnx Vaughn! I wasn't really going on about the average American/Canadian cycling enthousiast, cos i know, judging from this board for example, they usually have a very good idea what's going on. Rather the riders themselves, who seem to lack interest sometimes, but then again, indirect the enthousiasts and the riders will influence eachother so nevermind maybe. Maybe i should try and learn more about the better american one-day races, there must be some really great tracks in the very diverse american landscape, obviously. I tend to get a bit spoiled from living near the classical action here maybe. :) What are ur own favorite courses in america?
