LEAGUE NOTES

     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).
