Classics, Criteriums, Stage Races
With a lot of Criterium races in the US, there has been a lot of progress with stage races, Tour of California being the latest to grow considerably.
Do you think we will see Pro cycling get really big in the US?
Do you think Crits hurt or help pro cycling in the US?
I know a lot of cyclists including myself, who wouldnt want to race Pro in the US because of the overwhelming number of crits, if for example, your a high mountain climber. The accidents, and so on.
EDIT: Salary is obviously a big part of how much it will grow. Do Crits help attract sponsors, and hence bigger salaries? Are Crits then helpful in that sense. Is televising Crits easier that normal stage races, and hence attraction of sponsors?
