The criterium cycling circuit at Stromlo was named the Stephen Hodge Criterium Cycling circuit when it was opened in 2006.
Stephen Hodge has just admitted to doping during his career as a pro cyclist and has since resigned from his current position as vice-president of Cycling Australia.
So I think we need a new name for the Stromlo crit track, but looking at the current state of professional road cycling we’re going to struggle to find a clean cyclist with roots in the ACT. Any ideas? I reckon the best road cyclist Canberra has produced is Michael Rodgers, but he too has been named recently in the Lance Armstrong destruction of pro cycling.
