We’ve had news about cyclocross possibly being in the winter Olympics before, and gotten many people’s hopes up with our April Fools post last year on the subject. Sven Nys is optimistic it will happen, and Dugast has a tire ready if it’s on snow and ice. But the people aren’t content to sit and wait to see if it will happen.
One cyclocross fan put together a petition to get racers’ voices heard. While we’re not sure if the IOC will pay attention to such efforts, perhaps an impressive number of signatures may impress them? Get a few million of your closest friends and sign it if you think your favorite sport should be in the Winter Games. Would it be more exciting than curling?
