NO MLS IN INDIANAPOLIS? "Word out of Indianapolis is that Major League Soccer will not award the city one of its final two franchises, opting for Kansas City instead," according to Terry Armour of the CHICAGO TRIBUNE. Armour reports that Dallas is the leading candidate to receive the other MLS team (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 5/8). THE "HIPPEST SPORT"? Mountain biking "continues to climb in popularity" according to the Vancouver PROVINCE. A "fringe sport five years ago," it now has annual world championships and a 10- race World Cup series. It has "quietly become one of the hippest sports in the 90's," and can be seen on live TV in several European countries and attracts more than 50,000 spectators. The addition of the sport to full medal status for the '96 Olympics is also "expected to boost its popularity even more," and as the sport "grows, so does its attraction to sponsors, which in turn is attracting top cyclists" (Vancouver PROVINCE, 5/9).
