    So there I was watching The Lance Chronicles and they're showing the bikes Lance is using. All of the sudden, this *monstrosity* of a "Cyclysm Watch" ad pops up on the screen *and blocks the bottom HALF!* I thought "What idiot came up with that?" I assumed it was just to promote the Tour and would be off when it started. THEN, I'm watching today and it's a helicopter view and all of a sudden, that damn ad pops up and completely covers the Peloton! What's the idea? I can see that popping up right during a crash or a critical move and you miss the whole thing. What's the idea of an ad that covers HALF of the screen!?!?!?!?! IDIOTS! Anyway, help me out my e-mailing (feedback@olntv.com) or calling (1-800-OUTDOOR) OLN and complaining about it. Maybe we'll be able to see everything in a week or two. (They need to fire their ad person...)

    I know what you mean. The Italian feed from the Giro had some huge wacky graphics too, but I actually dug those 'cause they were quite stylish. As far as "cyclism" goes, the first commercial was really cool. You know, the one with the helicopter shots of the French contryside with thw warped out audio and disturbed video. Now the whole "cyclisim" bs is just annoying. I'm just glad I can at least watch the stages everyday!

    I hate that popping up on the screen too. I actually change the channel when some 'cyclsm' commercial comes on. It just seems so corny and stupid to me.

    I appreciate that they bring us the Tour, but damn... it's too much! I can't stand this cyclism crap either- like they're trying to come up with some pop culture, trendy new word that everyone will relate to.

    I'll guarantee you if some fool comes up and asks me where I was when for the cyclism, first I'll stare blankly at them, then I'll probably slap them.
