It’s been news about the men’s Tour down under, it’s been live streams and videos afterwards and no matter if you been in Australia or far here here in the northern Europe it’s possible to follow the racing.
But the women’s World Tour race that was before, where was the coverage of that? A guy I follow on Facebook that call himself Dan Gerous wrote this today:
”Cycling being what cycling is, we don’t get as much coverage of the women’s side of the sport. There was a Women’s Tour Down Under but no live coverage of it apart from the twitter accounts of teams in the race…
Not much has been said in the media about the new Cylance Pro Cyclingteam either, despite having some big names in it’s roster. Shelley Olds was a contender on most stages and finished 2nd overall for the team riding sweet Cannondale SuperSix Evos. The team also has Krista Doebel-Hickok, Alison Tetrick, Erica Zaveta, Valentina Scandolara, Rosella Ratto, Sheyla Gutierrez, Doris Schweizer and Kathryn Bertine.
Now let’s see if the UCI will enforce the mandatory Women’s WorldTour live coverage and other obligations so we can actually follow women’s cycling, often offering us very interesting, more attacking and aggressive racing compared to the too often over-controlled and predictable men’s races.”
Anyone seen any video coverage from the Women’s Tour Down Under, please write a comment with a link and help spread it.
