Bicycle racing on network TV

I know this is short notice, but for those of you who are bicycle racing junkies may want to watch the U.S. Open Cycling Championship today on NBC. Same day coverage of the race will be broadcast from 1:30 to 4 p.m. CDT.

VeloNews reports that this is significant for U.S. cycling fans because it is the first time since the 1996 Tour DuPont that an American cycling event will have same-day national network coverage. In recent years, U.S. cycling fans have had to rely on cable networks to get same-day coverage of events such as the Amgen Tour of California.

Let's hope the broadcast gets decent ratings so the networks will increase their coverage of cycling.
