Did anyone watch that? I was kind of curious, even though it's really more of a ride, not a race. All I can say it that thankfully NBC doesn't cover cycling as a rule. It was about 5 minutes of actually showing the riders, and about 20 minutes of soppy, cloying, indepth interviews with the kids from Best Buddies, which was just torture to watch. ANd of course about 90 ads for volvos. Just like NBC olympic coverage, 90 percent sappy stories about the athletes struggles against adversity, and about 10 percent live coverage. I was just waiting for someone to mention their faith in Jesus, but I didn't catch any of that, one saving grace! However, they did show Bob Kerrey on his bike. Apparently he's quite the athlete and has raced pretty seriously from what I hear. The rest of it was basically a sappy infomercial. ANd no one had any good bikes!
