    I was watching a couple of CX races on the weekend and the commentators were all over this. According to them there is a pretty good push.

    Based on how the creation of the Olympic version of triathlon came about. That being the ease of television broadcasting and setting up for on site spectators with next to no gaps in the action. Cyclocross meets the requirements.

    CX seems kind of a forced sport for a winter Olympics. Somehow I picture anything in these Olympics as being on ice or snow. Now if you're talking FAT Bike racing, then it would be whole other story.

    DON'T REMOVE CURLING

    That's one of the best part of the winter olympics. Awesome game to make you feel better about your life choices, because no matter how bad your life is, you're not pushing blocks of rock on ice.
