Those brakes look sweet! As for the 'for alloy only' on the brake pads, it more likely has to do with the use of ceramic coated rims in that era, which needed their own special pads.

Certainly knowing the rules is key, (as far as any reading I've done), it would seem possible to apply for a TUE for Testosterone, it would also seem nearly impossible to be granted one.
IMHO, if a person medically needs Testosterone to function, said person should probably not be racing a bike...

I don't know how racing a Vegas/Wisconsin/NewEngland schedule would "ease the burden of travelling to the US. That is a geographical area nearly as large as all of Europe! Besides, what do the Belgian-centric sponsors who run the BPost and Superprestige series have to gain from going to the US? As cool as it might seem, I don't see it happening.
A World Cup could be a possibility, and be run with a second weekend of US C1 racing to cover the span. A Gloucester-Providence pair of weekends would be nice viable option IMHO.
