I totally agree with President Jacques Rogge. The 2012 Olympics in London was not besmirched in the cycling competions.

Don't drop Cycling out of the Olympics,but leave it for the Amateurs,the Big Boys have their own Races to contend and have Fun with,leave the Olys for the Amateurs to show their stuff,and climb into the Pro ranks if spotted and show promise/talent.

Cycling must be retained as we have nearly all the medals! Shame it wasnt a clean sweep of the golds however, maybe in Rio!
