On The Grapevine ... Dec. 4

* Schwinn announced that it will produce a limited number
of red and green Phantoms. These bikes are replicas of
the original red and green Phantoms, produced between
1950 and 1959. Schwinn believes that the limited number
of red and green Phantoms will sell quickly.

* A USA Cycling disciplinary panel recommended that Levi
Leipheimer receive a three-month suspension as a result
of a violation of Bylaw N., Section 2, Part 4, Prohibited
Practices, stemming from competition at the USCF Amateur
Men's Criterium Championship, Aug. 18 in Grandview
Heights, Ohio. That recommendation has been upheld by
Lisa Voight, USA Cycling executive director. The 23-year-
old Leipheimer will be required to return his national
championship jersey, medal and prize money. He will also
be suspended from the U.S. National Team for the same
period. The decision is subject to appeal.
