I guess the equivalent to previewing the 2009 Giro Route on National TV in the USA would be ESPN airing 14 hours of the NFL Draft, or the Speed Channel showing 400 hours of the Barrett Jackson Classic Car Auction. Bad examples? Probably. But I find it so cool cycling gets such a level of respect somewhere in the world at least. Even with all it's drug scandals it's still the most beautiful sport out there.
I haven't heard this much Italian spoken in one place since my barbershop back in Dunmore, but I still find the video worth watching.
Today's Ride: 2 hours. I felt pretty bad out there so I went super easy. I even stopped for a coffee, something I rarely do.
