We were down for about 3 hours this afternoon (maybe it is the Å’Gary Fisherâ€š effect - after our talk this morning...), but we are back up now. This is Day 2 of the Canadian bicycle industry trade show. We donâ€št have a lot of new products to tell you about - most of this stuff we covered last week at the Los Angeles Interbike show. We can tell you that for 1998 prices will be pretty stable, and that supply will be good - so the stuff you hear about will actually be available.
We brought an industry neophyte to the show - Kevin Willey (who produces the Club Mud website for Ontario mountain bikers). Kevin will be providing us with a Å’Bike Show Virginâ€š report, which should make interesting reading...
Our Gary Fisher chatroom was an interesting time (check out the session by clicking on the logo at the top of our main page), and Gary admitted that, even though he sponsors Paola Pezzo, he thinks Canadaâ€šs Alison Sydor is Å’just the greatest; a super ladyâ€š.
Tomorrow we will be bringing you a report on some of the new stuff that we saw in Toronto, and also let you know what we will be testing this fall, so check back in the late afternoon for an update.

TREXLERTOWN, Pa. -- It came down to the final event on the final night of the
$19,000 final round as Team EDS edged Cox Atlanta Velo for the team overall
title in the national, seven-event series.
Heading into the final event, the keirin, Team EDS trailed by three points,
but Marty Nothstein, Trexlertown, Pa.; and Trey Gannon, Plano, Texas,
finished second and third behind Marcelo Arrue (Mrs. Tâ€šs-Lexus), Alburtis,
Pa., to give Team EDS the overall title by 33 points.
â€žWeâ€šre very happy,â€° Gannon said. â€žIn February, we were 140 points behind, but
we kept chipping away.â€°
Team EDSâ€š lone victory on the final night came in the womenâ€šs individual
pursuit as Rebecca Twigg, Colorado Springs, Colo., finished ahead of teammate
Jen Evans, Austin, Texas. Evans, who crashed in the womenâ€šs points race; did
not start the final.
Cox Atlanta Veloâ€šs Nicole Reinhart, Macungie, Pa., earned the victory in the
womenâ€šs match sprint on her hometown track. The national sprint champion beat
Missy Thompson (PowerBar), Colorado Springs, Colo., in the final.
Other final night victories went to Shakleeâ€šs Jame Carney, Durango, Colo.,
and Derek Bouchard-Hall, Menlo Park, Calif., who won the Madison, and the
Mrs. Tâ€šs-Lexus Olympic sprint squad of Arrue, John Bairos, Redlands, Calif.;
