When Ken Fuller was 28 and fresh off his tour of duty with the 1976 U.S. Olympic cycling team, a gangly teen-ager approached him one day and began asking questions. The kid wondered about Fuller's training routine. He asked how to deal with certain competitive situations and strategies. Fuller patiently answered him. The teen-ager was Greg LeMond, and he apparently asked the right man the right questions.

There is no money awaiting the winner, only a three-foot-high cup, a gold medal and the prestige that comes with finishing first among the best bicycle riders in the world who are steeped in middle age, fending off time. This is what drives Kenny Fuller, 47, the only American to win two Masters World Championships on a picturesque St. Johann, Austria, course, traversing 120 kilometers, about 74 miles, through the countryside that enraptured Julie Andrews in "The Sound of Music."

Some of the world's premier amateur cyclists will descend on San Diego this week for the expanded Master's World Cup of Cycling, the first time the event has been in the United States. For the past 22 years, the World Cup has consisted of an 87-mile road race in Tirol, Austria. But Skip Cutting, a former world champion who has cycled for the U.S. Olympic team, arranged to supplement that event with criterium and velodrome racing today through Saturday in San Diego.

Mark Hoffenberg of Laguna Niguel defended his title in the men's 30-34 age-group criterium in the U.S. Cycling Federation masters' national championships as the Nissan/Schwinn team from Orange County dominated the 65-kilometer race in Long Island. "We controlled that race," said Mark Thomas of Rancho Santa Margarita, who finished 12th. "At the start of the race, we all went to the front and we kept the pace high.

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.

Ojai Valley residents Wednesday set up a roadblock to stop work crews from completing a National Weather Service radar tower atop Sulphur Mountain, despite a federal judge's order this week that allowed construction to resume.

For some cyclists, the Great Earth Masters National Championships means competing in their first masters race. For others, it means winning their first national title. And for still others, it means adding another red, white and blue jersey (symbolic of a national championship) to their collections. Saturday's opening day of the week-long masters nationals featured all three in the first of two days of criterium competition around the county administration building downtown.

Dear Street Smart: Eastbound drivers exiting the Santa Paula Freeway at Victoria Avenue face confusing signs that trigger a frustrating problem. It all starts with straight-ahead arrows painted on the pavement of the two-lane off-ramp at Victoria Avenue.

Not with 100 of the best age-group cyclists in the nation chasing him. "I will be a heavily marked man," said Hoffenberg, the defending national champion in the 30-to-34-year-old age-group criterium. "I won't be able to hide in the back of the pack."
