After 21 years, Philadelphia is losing its designation as the home of the national championships of professional cycling. USA Cycling, in Colorado Springs, Colo., announced yesterday that Greenville, S.C., would host the national pro championships beginning in 2006. The three-year agreement means that the winners of the Greenville race will be designated the U.S. pro champions. For the first time, USA Cycling said, the field will be made up solely of U.S. citizens and be open only to riders with internationally registered teams.

Win or lose in the Tour de France this year, Lance Armstrong has decided to skip the Olympic Games, relinquishing a spot on the United States team in Athens next month. "My first priority is to come back and see my kids," Armstrong said at the U.S. Postal Service team hotel yesterday. "I've done the Olympics many times, and if I don't have 100 percent motivation for something that's a very important event, then I don't want to take somebody else's spot. " Armstrong, who competed in three previous Olympic Games, winning a bronze medal in the time trial event at the 2000 Games in Sydney, has three children who live with their mother in Austin, Texas.

The International Olympic Committee has launched an investigation into allegations that Olympic officials and agents are selling tickets to the London Games on the black market. The IOC called an emergency meeting of its executive board Saturday in Geneva, Switzerland, after the Sunday Times newspaper in the United Kingdom presented a dossier of evidence on 27 officials controlling the tickets for 54 countries. The newspaper said several thousand tickets to the best events - including the men's 100-meter track final - had been put up for sale by national Olympic committees from their official ticket quotas.

The half-million or so cycling enthusiasts and revelers who are expected to line the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Kelly Drive, and the hilly streets of Manayunk probably won't notice, but Sunday's 156-mile international race will no longer crown the first American to cross the finish line as the U.S. champion. That distinction will happen on Labor Day weekend in Greenville, S.C., which is fine with Dave Chauner, the former Olympian who in 1985 gave birth to an event that has become one of the city's more popular sporting traditions - the Commerce Bank Philadelphia International Cycling Championship, benefiting Fox Chase Cancer Center.

An unidentified cyclist tested positive for doping during the Tour de France, widening the scandal that gripped this year's race before it began. The rider's name, team and nationality will not be released until the testing process is completed, including the analysis of a backup sample, the International Cycling Union said yesterday. The sport's governing body did say, however, that the rider's team and national federation were notified, as well as national and world anti-doping authorities.

Nicole Reinhart, a two-time U.S. National track cycling champion, was killed yesterday when she was thrown from her bicycle and struck a tree during a race in Boston.

The race was the final event of the 17-race Saturn Professional Tour, which Reinhart was leading. "This cuts very deep through the whole cycling family," said Philip Milburn, the chief operating officer of USA Cycling, the sport's national and Olympic governing body.

Twenty-four years ago, David Chauner seized on a breathtaking incline in Manayunk and made it a household name. Now, he's looking for a spot in Chester County to give a similar boost to a largely forgotten pursuit that once rivaled baseball in popularity. Chauner is the man who brought Philadelphia the annual professional bike race that includes the Manayunk Wall, and still is a promoter. His latest venture is to build an indoor velodrome - a banked track for bike races - somewhere along the Route 30 corridor in the Exton area.

Hope and Bryan McAdam spend almost $15,000 a year on their daughter, Sarah Uhl. Not for college. Not for medical expenses. On bicycles. And helmets and wheels and cycling outfits and coaches and transportation. The 16-year-old from Perkasie is one of the top junior female cyclists in the country. She has won nine national junior championships and has the coveted "Stars and Stripes" jerseys - the cycling equivalent of golf's green jacket. USA Cycling, which governs the sport, considers her an Olympics 2004 hopeful.

Nicole Freedman, a 5-foot-2 dynamo, powered her way to victory yesterday to secure an automatic spot on the U.S. cycling team for the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia. The rest of the team will be selected later this summer by the USA Cycling coaches. Freedman's triumph in the women's 64-mile road race came at the end of a bold, 250-meter uphill finishing sprint that saw her hold off Pam Shuster, the 1998 national road racing champion, and Philadelphia's Mina Pizzini.

It's still cycling, but the name has changed, and so have the course and the scheduling for the inaugural Parx Casino Philly Cycling Classic, which takes place Sunday. What is unlikely to change is the enthusiasm of the Philadelphia cycling community, and organizers said they hope that more than 100,000 spectators will see at least part of the 120-mile men's race and 60-mile women's race. The 12-mile course winds through Roxborough and East Falls, heading down Kelly Drive along the Schuylkill to Strawberry Mansion and Lemon Hill before returning to Manayunk along Main Street.

Proving once again that the baby boomer generation is not going to just sit down and grow old, , Peter Knoop, 57, of Kennett Square, is putting himself to the test with a solo 1,200-mile bike ride from Maryland to Homosassa, Fla. Starting out on the Route 1 bridge over the Susquehanna River in Maryland, due to the high rising water from the treacherous weather, Knoop embarked on this personal voyage Monday afternoon with a simple plan. "Take one mile at a time," he said. Complete with proper attire, a cell phone and a lengthy map consisting of bike routes and alternative trails that take him off the beaten path, Knoop was filled with anticipation as he rode off, despite the rain and wind.

This June, the Wachovia USPRO Championships won't be held on the streets of Philadelphia. But a bicycle race that looks an awful lot like it will be, organizers promise. After 21 years, the big event, which has become a civic institution, is undergoing an involuntary overhaul. Last week, in two unrelated moves, it lost both of the key elements in its title. First, the competition was stripped of its designation as the U.S. cycling championship. USA Cycling wanted a race limited to American cyclists only (as other countries have)
