I don't think it's cyclingnews job to write reports that almost no one reads, about races almost no ones following.
It's a sad state of affairs that people finds men's sport so much better than women's sport, but it's not cyclingnews' fault.

Despite the fact that I'm going to be watching the TT today and the RR later in the week I've voted no to the poll question, but if Eurosport or whoever took the plunge and screened more of the women's races then no doubt I might start taking a bigger interest. I guess like most things it comes down to $$$$$. It's going to be a brave tv company that in this current economic situation invests money and screen time into something that might not initially give much return.
It might be interesting to find out the viewing figures for the races this week and to see how they compare. Maybe even compare the crowds at the side of the road.
One more point of interest. Sixty six people have voted "yes", but no-one as of yet has created a thread for today's TT.

Do you want to watch better bike racing? => Team radios (not race radio) must go!

Then I started following Pauline Ferrand-Prevot, mainly because of her multi-talents (her beauty was a factor too, not going to lie), then I started following the whole Rabo women's team. So I guess I care about women's cycling to a certain extent.
