Mike,

mountain biking is an Olympic sport, there was a large outdoor arena and indoor track. Unfortunately it's obviously not popular amongst the TV programmers who would prefer you watch rhythmic gymnastics and syncronised knitting.

Boxhead, controlled is a good word. Much of the local criticism was that the control took away the spontaneity and buzz during and after the events.

Rebel, sure there are no rickshaws anymore. It was nice to get some clear days during the games. Shutting all the industry around the city for a few months really helped.
