PET scan results.

Got the results the other day, not too bad, small growth of something (tumor/necrosis) another round of chemo and see what the next MRI shows.
It will be good so race season can just hammer out as usual.

Following is from my neurologist.

"I just saw the results of the PET scan. There is only mild uptake of tracer, may be a combination of both tumor and necrosis from radiation. Since you are doing so well, let’s do one more cycle of Temodar and then repeat the MRI."

USA Cycling, where does our $ go?

USA cycling updated all semi pros to pro for 2009. Yes it is the riders choice to upgrade but how many pro racers does USA Cycling have?
If they had just 200 pro racers what is done with the thirty thousand made from licence fee for the riders? Certainly most result info is from nationals or road races can found on the site, lessen fees in these times for all of us.

More important are the beginner/sport/expert classes, without them NORBA does not exist, attention should be paid to them in magazines and more on the USA Cycling website. Just a page on results from each national for ALL classes in the magazines would help build mtb racing rather than three photos of the same pros on the techy dirt road climb/descent.

The ones whom pay bills and support the mtb races deserve attention, without them there would be NO NORBA.
