In an obscure shop on Chicago's deteriorating North Side, racing bicycles are put together that may sell for $6,500. When Peter O'Neill of Pasadena heard about it, he was scouting for owners, riders and coaches to flesh out his new enterprise, the National Cycle League. "Everyone serious about cycling passes that shop's portals sooner or later," he was told. O'Neill already had a former Chicagoan aboard, John Vollbrecht of Eagle Rock. Both were scarred from politics and ready for something new.

The NFL and the NHL are household abbreviations and their events dominate the TV screen. By contrast, Bob Frazier of Chatsworth has spent the last six years peddling the NCL, which is less widely known and is seen on TV only about a dozen times a year. NCL stands for the National Cycle League, which began in 1989 and was designed to make bicycle races attractive to U.S. audiences and sponsors.

There was mostly silence at the Fantasy Springs Casino on Friday night in the closing rounds of Winky Wright's easy victory over Robert Frazier, broken only by a few scattered boos. Ugly victories will do that to a crowd. But one man seated ringside was all smiles--Shane Mosley. He gets Wright next.
