    Watching the TdF coverage everyday on OLN, I'm was getting a bit tired of the same ads for Quaker State motor oil, Bow Flex Tread Climber, Discover Boating.CA, Bow Flex Tread Climber, Post Raisin Crunch, Bow Flex Tread Climber...etc.

    Seeing the Cervelo ads now playing has been much appreciated. Its cool to see an ad directly related to what I'm watching, and hearing David Z sing that Mississippi song is funny. It's too bad we dont see more specific bicycle product/manufactures advertise more during the TdF.


    What ads are other viewers around the world seeing, and are they played with the same repetition as I'm seeing?

    The Cervelo commercial was pretty cool. Can't wait until they release the documentary.

    Train smarter; ride harder; get faster; buy lighter (but not neccessarily in that order)

    Is it Cervelo that has the commercial of the boy riding the road bike ala TDF, with the Red Devil chasing him, tourists on the roadside cheering him, etc..? I like that one best so far.

    No, that's a commercial for Giro helmets.

    This is the most pathetic thing about the sports press in Canada..if it doesn't have a puck, they don't care.
    While a Cervelo rider had the yellow, all the puckheads could report on in the Globe and Mail was the business aspects of hockey for pages and pages-who G-A-F, especially in July.

    While the bikes are designed in Toronto, assembled in Burlington, the frames are built in Taiwan, there's no way you could get that mass production build quality in Canada. Team frames are hand built outside of Toronto. There's a great story of Cervelo of just two guys doing innovative engineering research from scratch, and in a little over a decade, the yellow at TDF. I was so impressed at these bikes I bought one.

    It was a very big deal for Cervelo to afford those spots, that's why the ads are only 10 seconds.

    +1 to all of that, especially the part about buying one because I was so impressed by them.

    I'm waiting for the Carbon Soloist in the Fall. They're like heroin dealers, the first taste is cheap, then they get you a few months down the road...

    ...wanna buy a stereo?

    Yeah those are funny...

    The Range Rover ads just drive me nuts though... equating driving with physically challanging events... and the guy never even goes off road. Just exemplifies all the problems of car culture.
