I'm not against womens cycling by any means ... I just find that I have limited time and with the ladies race directly after the mens, I think it's not going to get the attention it deserves. Isn't 3 full weeks of racing enough for anyone?

P.S. snarky drive-by comments aside, I did see a little dialog in the spring classics about the pros and cons of same day vs. different day men's and women's races -- the logistics, the coverage, the audience impact, etc. Do they lift each other up, synergize, or detract? And there are a few more variables in the stage races than in the one days.

No clear answer. Clearly women's racing is getting under-exposed. Recent moves toward equity (well, less inequity) are good. May they continue and have effect.
