It wouldn't be so bad if only they showed other races like they do the TDF, but I guess that will have to stay a pipe dream.

^^^^I've hoped for that. Vuelta, Giro, and all the classics. I'd even watch Keirin if they'd put it on.

I'd even watch the Tour of Pennsylvania with John Eustice doing the play by play.

Hey!! I caught you, taking another hit of Enzite! How can you possibly swear yourself off the stuff until the Olympics begin? Get a grip on yourself man. You think you can take just one, but that leads to more and more, and you know what happens then...you slide down the road to heavy addiction. Pretty soon, no woman within a 20 mile radius is safe.

OK...I've totally lost it, I need a 12 step program too.

It was fun to be up on the major mountain stage this year - almost got my toes run over taking a few pictures. Looking forward to see it again next year, happily there's a major motorcycle rally in my old home town that week, so making both is a doddle.

Try and watch the little track cycling that will be shown during the Olympics. Those guys are amazing.
