Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

surely the issue isn't that there are podium girls, just that there are no podium boys for women's races

true, but you've got to start somewhere. and this just happened to be sitting in front of me, a great opportunity for armchair-progressiveness. just couldn't pass it up.. =]

yes misogyny woven into the fabric of society, and we've got to undo it - one thread at a time... even the little ones.

You make a good point. Mankind has evolved past the butt sniffing stage. That's enough progress for me.

Was anybody watching the tour tracker stream during the presentation? I swear I can remember one of them saying something funny/awkward during the champagne spray down. Like, "I just love it when the podium girls get wet." or some variation of that but in a really pervy monotone.

It aired on Versus, just prior to the Tour of CA broadcast. I don't know when the race was actually held, but there were riders in it that were also in the Tour of CA.
