Oh boy, this is getting a lot of heat online. To be expected, I suppose.

But I must admit that in my haste, I thought it read "the oldest Grand Tour winner in the past 29 years." Without even noticing how nonsensical even that would be, I hadn't realized that what it really said was, the ONLY GT winner in the past 29 years."

What a deliberately asinine press release.  :angry

Why the distinctive cut-off date?

I have endlessly mocked NBC on here for their pathetic handling of cycling over the years, and will freely continue to do so. But I still look forward to Horner's commentating. He'll entertain me, and I'll be more informed along the way. And that's more than Liggett could ever do.

Do I care about the "other" stuff? Obviously, because I just posted a entire novel about it in the Dark Side. But it does it pertain to any of this? Nope.

I have absolutely no problem holding two seemingly-opposing views at once.
