    American cyclists of all ages and abilities lined up next to the world's best in 2012 to compete for world titles and Olympic glory. In all, USA Cycling members brought home 135 medals from world championship and Olympic competition in 2012. Junior and elite-level cyclists earned 15 of these medals. Amateur riders brought home 97 pieces of hardware while para-cyclists accounted for 23 of these medals.
    Congratulations to all of our 2012 world championship and Olympic Games medalists!

    I'm not moving there until you get some decent healthcare sorted.

    It's an impressive haul.

    America needs another Andy Hampsten or Greg LeMond /img/vbsmilies/smilies/icon14.gif and to secure a major grand tour title.
    Van Garderan looks to be a good prospect.
