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?

And how do we know that years later he won't decide they weren't
championships after all?

But to address your question, I believe these are the championships
that FIAC organizers were willing to put on. If you weren't in the
wilds of Canookistan you could organize the FIAC Road National
Championships.

Maybe you could run Worlds instead.

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.

At last he'd be able to OWN THE PODIUM, even if he bought it on ebay.
