Default More press reported LA's 140th than BJ's win.

Lance gets 140th out of 168 in the 4k prologue, and is covered
worldwide by the press.

Booby wins the overall at Paris-Nice, and the Glenwoods Springs paper
doesn't even cover it. Nobody seems to care.

So are you saying this is more proof on how unimportant P-N is?

I agree with Critpro. In his own special demented way he was exposing
the American Media's fascination with ol one nut. And yes, it's a
fabulous story and an inspiration to us all. But other cyclists are
accomplishing pretty cool things too. And some of them are american. I
personally love Andy Hampstens quote identifying himself as "The most
famous American Cyclist you've never heard of."

That's exactly what it is. How else do you define importance of a
professional athletic event in a sport that relies on sponsor exposure
if not by its media coverage?

Google News does not index the European papers very well. And stars get
more coverage in any sport; if he even is a star outside of his sport
and the sport itself is small, that effect is more obvious. You closet
LANCE-fan, you.

PAY ATTENTION now.... it is a complicated subject.

Crit pro posted on the 13th (that is SUNDAY) on my
calendar and the Postindependent posted a cute
little article on the 14th.... so while we'd all
like to think Critpro is a troll, his comments - when
made - were valid. kudos to him for proper research
and a Homer Doh! to those who failed to notice this
truth and just wanted to slam him....

But also, give the local newspaper some credit
as the race ended on Sunday and they did get out a
story the very next day (wonders if they gave BOOBy
any props on sat or sunday as he was in the lead?)
but I really don't care anyway.

And CritPro only wishes there was enough class in his legs so he could
compete somewhere other than a Wal-Mart parking lot. Hey, free slurpees.
