    When's the next televised race?

    I'm dying not seeing any coverage of races. Anybody know when the next race viewable in America is? I have basic ESPN and OLN. Would it be the Giro perhaps?

    Also, do any channels ever show any women's races? Any link to women's race sites would be appreciated.

    Oh, well...Back to looking at bike mags.

    The next grand tour is the Giro in May, I think. OLN covers it.

    I think I might send an email to OLN canada and ask them: is there a chance in hell we'll get more than the TDF this year, or is it going to be just the same dreck as usual?

    Yeah, it's really a downer when you turn to OLN and they're showing polar bear wrangling or some other nonsense. Don't they know how crucial biking is to mankind's existance???

    An email request for better coverage is a great idea.

    Yeah, that's a nice idea but their email form is useless. It doesn't even work. Like the rest of their station. What a bunch of useless turds. I don't think they give a wank what audiences want.
