Looks like OLN's planning a weekly series on the best of road cycling, and they're asking for your input!

Here's a link to the VeloNews article, where you can link to the survey.

Let OLN know if they show the GS from Soelden sunday, I will not cancel my cable monday. I have had enough of OLN and Comcast. If they want my imput, they can pay for it. I'm done paying for nothing.

I did the survey, but spent more time going through the female races and female cyclists. I'm sure all the popular male cyclists will already get covered. I would hope to see more females featured. Maybe we'll finally see Velo racing on live television!

Specific cycling events covered ?

Milan San Remo
Worlds
Paris Tours
Giro di Lombardia
San Sebastian

They already give the damn TDF enough coverage. Why request more?

I couldn't think of two domestic races that I care about.

A weekly show is nice, but we are talking about the “Home of professional cycling” that hasn’t even shown the Vuelta in two years. Their weekly shows don’t seem to last more than a season.

Done. Don't know if it will help. OLN's Chief exec. is an avid cyclist. H wants to do more programming but it is all aboutthe bottom line.
