    Oh geeze, what a nightmare, so glad OP got her money back. I can't say I'm surprised. She came out to fit my horse/sell me a saddle at one point and I got the same schtick as others have described:...

    What past Olympic xc course is still in use? Los Angeles - no. Atlanta - no. Hong Kong - no. London - no. Not sure about Barcelona. Only Bromont comes to mind at the moment, and that's going...

    The other US finalists are Washington DC, San Francisco and Los Angeles. It's a pretty cool plan they have in place for Boston - they would be the "walking games". None of the venues would have its...
