    The revival of the Olympic Games in 1896, unlike the original Games, has a clear, concise history. team dominated the track and field events, taking first place in 9 of the 12 events. The Games were a success, and a second Olympiad, to be held in France, was scheduled. Olympic Games were held in 1900 and 1904, and by 1908 the number of competitors more than quadrupled the number at Athensfrom 311 to 2,082. Although the Olympic Games have been increasingly politicized, the ideal of the world's best athletes competing against each other in the arena of so-called pure sport has been at least partially realized, especially from the athletes' point of view. And even though skill and courage are manifested by most Olympic participants, the great gold medalists are the ones who are most often remembered. More History

    HISTORY The idea of a self-propelled vehicle on wheels has intrigues mankind through many centuries. But it did not take definite form until 1690, when a two-wheeled contrivance made its appearance on the streets of Paris. The originator was M. de Sivrac, Frenchman. The machine consisted of two wooden wheels, with upright posts on the sides of the sides of the wheels, such posts being joined together by a crossbar. Sivrac made one cardinal error, which condemned his device to oblivion. He forgot the need for pedals. There was no further bicycle experiments public knowledge until 1785, when another Frenchman launched a somewhat similar machine upon an abbreviated career. The machine also had to be pushed. But the new inventor put the front wheel on a pivot, which permitted steering independently of the back wheel. That like also disappeared because the French of that era after examining the creation expressed doubt that a man ever could keep a two-wheeled machine in motion and still maintain balance. In 1789, a three-wheeled contrivance was created by two Frenchmen - Blanchard and Magurier. Comment concerning it appeared in the journal de Paris" on July 27, 1789.

The Early Years As a teenager growing up in Colorado, Bobby was introduced to many outdoor sports. Bobby's father, Bob Sr. began competing in triathlons, and took young Bobby on bike rides with him. He encouraged Bobby to take up triathlons as well, but Bobby wasn't as excited about running and swimming. After seeing Greg LeMond in the Tour de France on television, Bobby decided cycling was the sport for him. In 1985, at age 14, Bobby decided to enter the Red Zinger Mini Classic, a stage race in Boulder for junior riders. He quickly revealed his talent by winning his age category. Bobby went on to win many more races as a junior, including the Junior National Road Race Championship in 1987, and was named as a member of the US Junior National Team. He won the Tour de L’Abitibi, a prestigious junior stage race in Canada in 1988 and 1989, and also competed in the Junior World Championships in Moscow. Bobby graduated from Glenwood Springs High School in 1990, but not before
