Bicycle racing coverage

A letter we wrote to the Washington Post regarding their lack of coverage of bicycle racing was recently published. While FABB is primarily concerned with advocating for better bicycle facilities for transportation cyclists I do enjoy the sport of cycling. Whenever possible I watch the latest racing news on the Versus channel on Sundays. Professional cyclists are some of the best athletes in the world, and yet there is rarely a mention of the sport in the major newspapers. Currently the Giro d'Italia is underway, with an American team, Slipstream, in first place after the team time trial.

We'll have to continue to rely on Velonews and other cycling sites for our bicycle racing fix, since the letter seems to have done little to influence the coverage in the Post's sports pages.
