    Does anyone have any idea why Healthnet isn't riding? wouldn't Gord want to be at the biggest race
    in the country? D

    THe race is very expensie. All thing said and done most likey they woulnd not get the exposure for
    the 12 grand (give or take)

    and roswell.

    There may be other reasons why Gord is not riding Georgia. Those same reasons may keep him from
    Philly and all of Threshold Sport's events.

    Attaboy Tommy, keeping the SE PA rumor mill alive (although I do give you more credibility than some
    guy who claims to be doing someone that Kunich used to do).

    Douchebag,

    What are you insinuating? The reason that Gord is not in the Tour of Georgia is the same reason that
    the sportsbook guys and the LeMond guys aren't there: They didn't have their UCI registrations
    together by the time that the race registration had to be finalized.

    For a guy who makes a living off of the sport, I'd expect that you'd have more smarts than to go
    around engaging in innuendo which impacts people's reputations. If you've got some hard evidence to
    reveal, then lets hear it.

    How do I make a living off the sport? Isn't this newsgroup full of innuendos?

    When asked why these two high-profile racers skipped the current Tour of Georgia for the smaller but
    more historic La Vuelta de Bisbee, Sayer said, "We're a team that's only four months old. And
    although it hurts to see the results in Georgia and know we could be doing some damage out there,
    this race fits so much better for us." He says that preserving the team's funds so they can continue
    to be competitive throughout the year is a priority for Team HealthNet. "We don't want to run out of
    money half way through the year.
