    yea, read that a month or two ago. . . thats a shame, he doesnt deserve to get it taken away since they already said he could race. . .

    That was gutting. Nige is a good mate and I know he'll return and kick ass. Again.

    Rumour has it that "whinging kiwis" had something to do with it. Marshy and I were the only 2 kiwis competing at the Champs and both of us are friends with Pagey. Any idea who else could be meant?

    that's weak sauce. he's still the winner in my book. anyone else remember him racing semi-pro slalom either last year or the year before? now that was funny.

    That's interesting, i thought the rule i saw just mentioned competing in World Cups, not UCI points.

    Interesting that he claims he didn't race in anything that would get him uci points, maybe someone goofed up working out the numbers?
