Professional cycling has been a part of Manhattan Beach for 45 years, but never have the sport and its participants been under such intense scrutiny for doping. One week has passed since Floyd Landis, winner of the Tour de France, was stripped of his title as cycling's greatest champion after two of his urine samples showed an unusually high ratio of testosterone. Also, two of the top riders, Jan Ullrich and Ivan Basso, were banned from competing just days before the Tour for a similar offense.

For the past few months, Skip Cutting has devoted at least 12 hours a day, last week even more, smoothing out details for the Atlas Hotels Masters World Cup Cycling event. His training had dwindled since he placed fourth in 40-44 Criterium at the Nationals here in July. Since then, he has made occasional rides on a tandem bike or has worked out on a track.

Winter can be a frustrating time for bicyclists in much of the world. Forced off the roads by inclement weather, riders are left to spin their wheels indoors on stationary trainers. It's different in Southern California and that's why many professionals relocate here in winter, taking advantage of the milder conditions. You can see the results every day on Pacific Coast Highway, a major training ground for the titanium set.

After Chris Carmichael broke his leg in a skiing accident last December, he was told to start looking for another job. His job at the time was a professional bicycle racer. Doctors at a Mt. Shasta hospital said he probably would never ride competitively again and would not walk for at least a year. But on Sunday, Carmichael was where he loves to be--pedaling furiously in the lead pack of a bicycle race.

Glen Winkel of San Francisco and Martin Graf of Encinitas began the Open Criterium for riders 30 and over, the final race during the Masters World Cup of Cycling Championships, as competitors. With a lap to go they became teammates. "We didn't plan it, or anything," Winkel said.

What was described by promoters as a difficult .7-mile, 10-turn course proved to be quite simple to 51-year-old Joe Saling, who on Saturday won his second Masters World Cup criterium in the 50-54 age group in as many years. It could be said that Saling won by cliche. "Like in many aspects of life," said Saling, who hails from New Jersey, "the saying 'out of sight, out of mind' is true in cycling. If you can manage to get out of your competitors' sight, it's very easy to go on and win."
