      Good question.
      More Elite riders is the obvious benefit. Media is a function of how hard &
      smart the promoter works themselves. Maybe, a little more
      National/VeloNewsish type of press. This however does little good
      obtaining/keeping non-industry sponsors, vs local print, radio & TV
      advertsising and publicity.
      If USGP hooked up with OLN, then it is game on.
      USGP selection could be interesting in '05.
