Of course not Beijing and Oman. I specifically identified regions with some sort of cycling base.hrotha said:Problem is you're talking about San Luis, Colombia and Poland, while McQuaid was talking about Oman, Beijing and Qatar.
It was a decent race. Meh. empty roads. Same old teams, riders. Same old climbs. 1 good stage maybe.gooner said:No way will P-N ever be demoted and nor should it be either. In the case of Catalunya I was reading Dan Martin's column a couple of years back in Procycling and he was saying it was the only WT race at the time that was not shown live on TV. Contador's win in 2011 only got highlights coverage. That was the big problem back then. The last 2 years it has been shown live and the weather was a big problem in 2012 and this year was a decent race. Unfair to single out that race.
Is that really worth defending just because it was there first? When there is a whole world out there that has so so so much more to offer.
