They came from as far away as
Washington, D.C.. and they brought with
them some of the most sophisticated
equipment that modern technology can
produce. Most left with no more than what
they brought except maybe a feeling of
satisfaction from having done their best.
The event which attracted approximately
70 bicyclists from three states to downtown
Carrboro Sunday afternoon was the first
Carrboro Criterium Bicycle Race,
sponsored by the Carrboro Business
The criterium. which is a race of several
laps around a relatively short course(in this
case, .7 miles), was broken down into seven
races of different lengths for riders of various
abilities and experience. The shortest race,
for novice women, was 3 miles long, while
the race for Olympic-caliber riders was 45
miles long. Traffic was prohibited from the
race area to protect the riders.
"It looks like there's good competition
here today," said Curtis Mills of Lexington.

the current North Carolina road-race
champion. He had just returned from a two
month road trip" that carried him to races
across the country, including the national
road race in Seattle. Wash., where he
finished 23rd, out of over a 100 racers.
"I'm going to try to make my move the
second half of the race. "I do better ona hilly
course of 110 to 120 miles, but I enjoy
criteriums. I'll be working with some
teammates to our best advantage so we can
get as many placers as we can."
The race at Carrboro was just one of a
growing number of cycling events that have
been gaining in popularity in the United
States in the last 10 years. The bicycle
perhaps enjoyed its greatest popularity for
use in competition at the turn of the century,
when competitive cycling was a major event
that ranked with baseball for both
participation and spectator interest.
At that time, the United States boasted
some of the finest riders in the world. But as
the automobile became more popular, the
bicycle was used less for transportation, and
consequently competitive cycling
diminished in the United States.
But about 10 years ago. the bicycle began
to regain a place in athletic competition in
the United States, perhaps because of an
increased awareness of physical fitness or as
a means to satisfy a competitive urge.
Still, the Americans lagged far behind

racing continued to nourish even after the
automobile became popular. Today,
competitive cycling is second only to soccer
as a spectator sport in Europe.
France annually holds a grueling, 23-day
race featuring the world's greatest cyclists.
This event, the Tour de France, has been
called the most demanding athletic event in
the world. And participants in European
racing, and especially in the Tour de France,
are some of the highest-paid athletes in the
Yet even with the resurgence of
competitive cycling, bicycle racing remains
almost entirely an amateur sport in the
United States. Only a handful of American
cyclists, such as George Mount who finished
sixth in the 1976 Olympic road race, are
beginning to make an impact in

Many of the racers Sunday sported bikes
costing from $800 to $1,200. These super
light racing machines weigh as little as 20
pounds, and the frames and components are
made of any number of special alloys or even
titanium. The frames arc designed to be
extremely rigid to facilitate transferring the
maximum amount of the rider's energy into
the forward motion of the bicycle
Preparing for a race means many hours
and miles of training. A racer usually rides
between 250 and 400 miles each week in
"Say you're racing 1 70 miles, averaging 28
miles per hour, and the road temperature is
100 degrees," said Vince Davis from
Winston-Salem. "It's just hard you have
to be ready."
Davis said he races for the competition.
"It's the most competition that you can
find in any sport. And it's the most physically
exerting sport there is."
To prepare himself for the race. Davis had
a breakfast of spaghetti for starch, followed
by several noncarbonated soft drinks and a
roast-beef sandw ich. Most racers will not eat
anything within three or four hours of race
time, except maybe some fruit just before the
race for quick energy.
A constant worry of every competitive
cyclist is injuries, particularly from crashes.
As the riders usually race in groups, often
within inches of one another's tires, it is not
unusual for several riders to go down at
once. Several riders were injured in a crash
Sunday in the novice men's race.
"There's an average of one wreck in every
race," Davis said. "It's very bloody."
Because of the frequency of injuries, many
racers shave their legs to provide for cleaner
wounds and less-troublesome bandaging.
"I always get kidded about that." one racer
But regardless of the risks and expenses of
competitive cycling, most racers seem to feel
it's worth it.
"I'm going t o race as long as my knee holds
out," Davis said.
