  SYDNEY -- If it's not one thing, it's another.
 Medal hopeful Alison Sydor had a bushel of available excuses after finishing fifth in last night's five-lap, 37.5-km Olympic women's cross-country race at the Fairfield City Farm mountain bike course.

Sydor finishes fifth in Sydney
 SYDNEY (CP) -- There is a lot of racing left in Alison Sydor.
 After finishing fifth in the women's Olympic cross-country cycling race, the 34-year-old Vancouver mountain biker wasn't talking retirement. She was talking as if she might go on forever.
 "I'll be back next year very motivated and ready to do some damage again," she said.
