Can we persuade OLN to air the Vuelta a Espana**********

I am copying the following from today's Road Bike Rider newsletter in the hopes that each of us can take a second to voice our desire for OLN to cover the upcoming Vuelta a Espana [Tour of Spain].

Outdoor Life Network has televised the most pro road
racing ever seen in North America. For that we are
thankful.

But OLN has decided not to air live daily coverage of
the Tour of Spain (Vuelta) as it has in previous years
and as it did for the tours of France and Italy this
season. The Vuelta is set for Sept. 4-26 and apparently
will get one hour of OLN attention on Oct. 27.

An online petition asking OLN to reconsider and show
the Vuelta live can be found at:

https://www.petitiononline.com/vuelta3/petition.html

As of last night, the petition had attracted 13,607
signatures, including ours. How about yours?

...1000 new signatures in the past 36 hours!

Come on guys, OLN's broadcast schedule has always been very changeable, so this might actually WORK!
