Canadian Win Three U.S. Awards
Canadians won three of the annual Velonews awards, all in the North American categories (Velonews also has international categories, where Mario Cipollini took top honours):
Ride of the Year - Charles Dionne
Mountain-Bike Man of the Year - Roland Green
Comeback of the Year - Dustin Adams
All three of these riders are in the running for Canadian Cyclist of the Year awards.
Canadians also figured in the Men's and Women's Road Team awards, won by Mercury (Gord Fraser) and Saturn (Lyne Bessette and Kim Davidge) respectively.

Sorry, no new bamboo bike material today (although Ford has recently shown a car partially constructed of bamboo).
