Iíd rather go ride one of my bikes, then watch someone else, or a whole bunch of someone elseís ride, no matter how talented they are. Bike racing is not really much of a spectator sport, kind of boring. I do enjoy watching the TdF coverage, but would never consider going to watch it in person, super boring. You might get more Americans to watch if they would crash more, but even then, probably not. Kind of like kayak/canoe racing, any college/high school sport, that isnít football or basketball, and most other personal athletic endeavors, only family, or close friends of the participants, are gonna show up to watch.
