because everything on my blog comes true.....

when is the world championship team going to be selected? did i miss an announcement? the race is a mere 16 days away.... i have heard that people like to peak for that race, so announcing a team 2 weeks out might be a good idea.....

as i was wondering about who was going to represent the USA for the women this morning, and i couldn't find an announcement, so i figured it hadn't been decided yet. i figured the best thing i could do to incite a quick announcement from the powers that be, would be to blog about it... because apparently my blog has a very good track record of getting things done.

proof?
unfortunately, nothing has ever happened with those keirin cut jeans, but goonies never say die.

anyway, although i was just wondering who was going to be on the team, i figure i may as well use my influence to say who i would like on the team.... i know shelley olds already has an automatic spot because she won the pan-am championship. but here are my two requests of who i would like included on the A-team this year. i feel confident usa cycling will take bethbikes! suggestions as law.

#1. kat mattis

i got to eat mexican food with kat mattis at the madera stage race this year, and upon listening to her talk for one minute, i decided i had a friend crush on her. she's smart. she's fast. she's wise. she can suffer. she is a good teammate. she knows racing. and she has had some amazing results this year. and she is super cool. i heard a stupid rumor she is retiring after this year, and i didn't like that one bit, so instead of listening to such hogwash, i just put my fingers over my ears and said "la la la la" really loud. anyway, i think she would make a really excellent addition to the world championship team for USA.


#2 theresa cliff-ryan

well, i have not had the pleasure of meeting this lady, but i am super duper impressed my her. i saw her at track nationals last year, and because i was a dipshit and didn't make the points race final, i got to witness her guts, smarts, and speed on the bike, as i watched from the stands. watching someone perform a good points race can be like watching something in the theater arts. i heard about her winning the gold in the points race championship in the pan-american games. a good points racer can do anything, so i was not surprised to continuously see her name in all the big road racing results all year long. it would also be wise to include her on the A squad.


there are lots of other most excellent additions, but i will leave that for people to contribute to in the COMMENTS section on my blog. but just remember, i am the influential one, so my top two choices will be the designated names. and i predict an announcement by wednesday or thursday... cause my blog really does get things done quickly.

So i think Shelley, E. Stevens, and M. Abbott are all locked in. They have a big team this year so there are quite a few options. I would guess Shelley's leadout team is going to get the nod. You would think that Katheryn would get in for the year she's had so she's my pick!

Totally unrelated to this post, but someone stole your Keirin Cut idea, quite blatantly at that:
