Cycling--and Obama?

From Road Bike's newsletter #339:

U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama made a surprise appearance at Indiana University's Little 500 women's race last Friday while campaigning for the Indiana primary. Obama didn't issue any public comments, according to, as he walked the quarter-mile track with photographers and the Secret Service in tow, shaking hands with riders as they warmed up on trainers. His attendance reportedly set back the race start by 25 minutes. Afterwards, Delta Gamma rider Jess Lander was asked which was more exciting, meeting Obama or winning the Little 500. "I'm not going to lie," she replied, "Winning the race is better. But it's pretty damn close."
You know, I'm an Obama supporter, but for the love of goodness, keep the man out of spandex! The bowling alley incident was bad enough...
