More dirt coming to the Olympics

It’s hard to believe, but next year’s Olympics in Beijing will be the first time BMX racing will be a medal event. I mean, it’s been almost 30 years since the movie RAD came out.

The BMX discipline (if you can call it that) joins track racing, road racing, cross-country mountain biking, and the time trial.

Wouldn’t it be great to see an all-around title for the single best cyclist in all disciplines — similar to gymnastics or the decathlon? Can’t wait to see road-racing gold-medalist Paolo “the Cricket” Bettini hitting the whoopdee-doos on a Schwinn Scrambler.
