Why Don't You Cover . . . ?

Saturday, May 3, 2008

It is unfortunate that The Post provided no coverage to the Tour de Georgia, one of the biggest bicycle races in the United States. Some of the best cyclists in the world competed, among them George Hincapie, Levi Leipheimer, Chris Horner and David Zabriskie.

These are exceptional athletes, and their efforts are celebrated around the world but ignored here.

Meantime, The Post also overlooked the Spring Classic bicycle races in Europe.

I have pointed out the lack of racing coverage to you numerous times and am disappointed and frustrated to see no improvement.
