So far... more commercials than coverage. Though it seems there was a number of crashes early. Another Hincapie like steerer break on the Milram (?) rider.

At least we're getting 2 hours of Paris-Roubaix.

Coverage was pretty lame. Definately going to be checking out the cycling.tv coverage soon to see if I can catch some of the earlier riding. Hope the Paris-Roubaix is better. But I can't complain too much when you get to see two different pro level races in one weekend.

I for one will take any cycling coverage I can get on TV. Could it have been better? Sure. Could it have been longer? Sure.

But watching my recording of it after Desperate Housewives was the perfect end to my Easter weekend...that and the giant mint whipped creme egg I devoured while watching it.
