What if you Had Worlds & Your guy didn't come
It looks like Cross World's could once again have the U S of A not sending their National Champ. Two of the Potential winners, Todd Wells & Tim Johnson, have already said they won't go to World's. That sucks for Cross in the US. I think USAC should make it mandatory if you win you have to go & you go on USAC's dime. I just don't get it. Yes I understand the long season & other commitments. But if your a National Freaking Champion you have obligations that go beyond all your others. Don't get me wrong Wells & Johnson are two of my favorite racers but I think they have an obligation to the sport. Hopefully if they win they'd be willing to change their minds(though I don't think Wells will). I guess I'm cheering for Page & Trebon now more than usual.
