Bicycle races and Universal Sports

It's great to hear that Versus is back on DirecTV, but I would like to ask that all of you who are DirecTV subscribers let DirecTv know that you would like to have Universal Sports be a permanent part of the Choice Package. Last fall they carried Universal in the Choice Package for a couple of weeks, and they showed the Vuelta and the World Championships and reruns of the Giro. this weekend they will have Milan-San Remo. They carry a number of the other so-called "minor sports," including track and field, nordic and alpine skiing, triathlon, etc. It was a wonderful few weeks, but it would be great to have it all of the time and not in a premium package.
