Les, I'm perfectly content that you're doing good work over there in FIAC, but what kind of crazy organization has a TTT championship, an Elite 6-Day championships, but no road or TT championship event?
A short answer to your question is "An organization with a shortage of
entrepreneurs." Actually, when we first started doing national
championships they were deliberately chosen to not overlap with USCF
championships but after awhile we broadened our coverage. However we
are unlikely to develop a broader championship program unless we are
able to expand our geographical coverage and every time it appears that
we are about to do that, USAC sends a letter to the major race
organizer threatening to suspend riders who compete in races we organize.
