    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.

    I don't have directv or cable, but we get universal sports over plain ol' broadcast. have you checked to see if it's carried that way in your area?
    would you rather weave through traffic, or sit in it?

    you know, now that you ask, it's a good point - I've only seen road racing and mountain biking on the ocho...
