I don't care about womens cycling for the same reason that I don't care about any womens sport. When I watch sport I want to know that its being played to the highest standard. Whether that's cycling, rugby or boxing it just isn't as good as the men. Mind I used to like womens tennis when there were a few fitties about.

I have some interest but my brain is full with World Tour stuff and I'm not even up to date with that.

That's truly dumb. Whether it's women, juniors, or third division football, you're missing out on a lot of good action. The "Highest standard" is often comparatively boring.

At long as women are excluded by men from participating in their sports, you will never know if it is being played to the highest standard.

Let's see, how do I say this in a politically correct way...

I care about women and I care about cycling.

I also care about pineapples and I care about pizza. Now you don't want to know what I think of the Hawaii.
