    I have never met a native american cyclist at all.
    If there are any, I would like to hear about it. Pro or not.
    With people like Peter P. around, I am done posting on this website. Mean people have driven me off after 9 plus years. Good luck newbies beware.

    Grewal was not Native American...I think you are getting your "Indian" confused.

    wow ...do you know him? or how did you find him? I'm living in Madison, not far from where he is from and was just on his reservation last week. What are the odds. Thanks a lot.

    I grew-up in WI and raced the WORS series for a few years and remember him and his father.
    Then saw his name in some results for U23 about a year ago and have kind of followed his results a bit. He's not having the best results down in Mexico at the moment.

    when I worked

    for a Native American Owned Clothing company I was in the stages with one other employee of putting together a club/team for young American Indian riders. Was going to try to get Russ Denny to build the frames and had a connection with Nike's Just Move It director for getting gear. Was looking quite promising until the company imploded.

    Hello. I am Native and I ride a bike. Come to NM and I will introduce you to lots of us. I never knew the white man rode bikes. I thought you all drove SUVs or stage coaches.

    Cole is good friends with Baumann, whom I ride with regularly in the fall. I can get his email for you if you PM me.

    If you didn't pull a stage coach with a team of bicycles you'd never get anywhere. You end up with a pace line when the dang harness breaks then you never see them again and you end up sitting there on top of the stage looking like a fool going nowhere fast.

    That's the problem, you are in the wrong part of the state.

    Yeah, head to the hills...

    You gotta go to Taos/Espanola where the hills are, baby!!! Not where the ponies run. Too flat to ride a bike there. Or head to the Canadian Rockies, north of Jasper. Great result for Cole in that weather I'd say. Just brutal. Even Dwaars was pretty awful this week. That's a hard man's 200km. Nice job for Van Impe also.

    Very few people know that Jim Thorpe actually won the 1915 Tour de France.

    See! A conspiracy to keep the red man down! The French claim they skipped it in 1915, made up some war... as if the French would actually fight.

    Is cycling the whitest sport on earth? I love hockey and people joke about the lack of integration, but Cycling? In the protour, who are the Asians, Blacks, Indians. These are not small ethnic groups. I understand socailization and all, but most other sports you get the random exceptions....World champion 110 hurdler from China, Black Stanley cup winning goalies. And dont give me "what about the TDFaso.

    Plenty of black and latin pros. Cycling is an expensive sport, so it will never be as diverse as any of the ball sports.

    Auto/motorcycle racing is more "white." If you want to consider some of those a sport.

    http://velonews.com/photo/90006 -- yes, the guy in the middle won. 2nd place went to the asian, with the white guy in 3rd.

    Only way you guys beat the British was to get Frenchy help, wait a minute the Native Americans were fighting for the British, so in effect the French kicked the Native American's arses. Who wouldn't fight? History can be a *****!
    Re native American riders this guy rode a lot last year, he has also gone really really fast.... http://www.rocketrek.com/
