Gorski and Young Head Cycle Field at Velodrome

Olympic medalists Mark Gorski and Connie Paraskevin Young headline the field today through Saturday in the Los Angeles stop of the Sundance Grand Prix of Cycling in the Olympic Velodrome at Cal State Dominguez Hills.

Young, 28, was the only U.S. cyclist to win a medal in the Seoul Olympics last year, taking a bronze in the women's match sprints.

Gorski, 29, won the gold medal in the match sprints at the Los Angeles Games in 1984 but didn't get a chance to defend his title at Seoul, losing to Ken Carpenter last summer in the U.S. Olympic trials.

Carpenter also will compete this week at Dominguez Hills.

Racing will start tonight at 7, followed by a second session Friday at 7 p.m. The finals in most events will be held Saturday, starting at 1 p.m.
