I'm sure I'm not the only reader of Petty's response who, without knowing him at all, think he's a pompous and arrogant asshole. The way he slanders and demeans Brad Ross is unprofessional and shows the lack of respect the heads of USAC have for the "grassroots" organizations.
(Not to mention the condescending comments he throws Kenji Sugahara's way.)
I'm brand new to the politics of bike racing at a local versus national versus international level, and therefore can remain unbiased.
However, with that objective perspective, I'm not afraid to say it sounds like Petty and the USAC are being bullies.
