Currently there's this pro race event held in Beijing (China) on same route as next Olympic Games, so it's quite important.

Winner for the male RR it's italian Bosisio (Tenax).

Are they going to study the health of the riders after the race. :? The environment surely will be an issue for a 5 hour RR

I certainly wouldn't want to expose my lungs to that toxic crap.

Congratulations to the winners.

Please remember that the Chinese are not allowed freedom to communicate and use the Internet as we are. Amnesty International reports that China performs more judicial killings than any other country in the world. Torture and human rights abuse are endemic.

The Olympic ideal has no place in China and I respectfully suggest that the UCI stops legitimising the regime by being involved in such events.

The elegant Good Luck website is pretty obscene when one considers that Chinese people can be imprisoned or tortured for using websites for free speech. When Chinese people have access to such a glossy website discussing democracy then I'll watch sport there. Until then may I politely suggest that members of this forum might consider boycotting Chinese sports events, especially the Olympics.

Regards

Alan McLean
