must stand for No Bicycling Coverage. I'm starting to get irritated that they haven't shown any cycling. A 220 km road race was condensed to showing Tyler cross the finish. The ITT didn't get any more coverage and neither have the track races that have been run so far. But on the other hand I did get to watch 30 minutes or so of SPEEDWALKING before I mercifully fell asleep. Did you know that they get a yellow card if both feet leave the ground at any point? And if you get three yellow cards you get disqualified. I was on the edge my seat.

It is actually called race walking and you can get an unlimated number of yellow cards, you can only get three red cards and then you get disqualified (they have to be from seperate judges though). You also have to have your knee strait as it passes under your body. Why this is getting live coverage twice (both men's and women's for nearly 3 total hours I don't know). But I really don't understand how an American winning a gold and another a silver can not get more coverage. I guess a primetime minute equals an hour of nihgt coverage. Actually there was more of the womens TT on i believe. I have it on tape and have to get around to watching it.

It's pitiful. They showed a LOT of the track racing in the previous Olympics and I loved it.
