Many people on this site and others enjoy racing and all the people who go along with it,past,present and future. Go out and see a Madison race, points race. Most if not all great pros will tell you that both are some of the best mass start events that can be done on a bike. Go to a 6 day anywhere and you will believe. I am unsure what are seen as absolutely needed cycling events for a good program at the Olympic games, if points race and Madison are not 2,BMX should be left out of the UCI's budget to make room for better racing.
