Pan Am Championships vs. Pan Am Games

I received an anonymous comment yesterday:

"on your bio you note you are the only top ten finisher . wayne and dale stetina placed 4th and 5th respectfully in 1979"

I think there is a slight misunderstanding - the last time I checked (which was not recently), I'm the only US male rider to have placed in the top-10 in the UCI's annual Pan American [Continental] Championships road race. These are different than the Pan American Games, in which the Stetina brothers placed 4th and 5th in 1979.

The Pan Am Championships take place annually. The Pan Am Games are held every four years (always occuring the year before the summer Olympics).

Sorry for the confusion...
