“There’s only a couple of times we go out to cycling. One of them is if there is a terrible crash, another one is if there is a guy in his underwear running with a pig next to a bicycle during the Tour de France.”
Such is the truth about the coverage of cycling by non-cycling media much of the time.
It is not Tour time, but there was a big crash in the Elite Men’s race at U.S. Cyclocross Nationals, and it recently made its way onto one of ESPN’s talking-heads shows called Highly Questionable with host Dan Le Batard and guests Pablo Torres and Israel Gutierrez.
Cyclocross folks certainly had a lot to say about the crash, and in the video below, you can hear what the non-cycling hosts have to say as well.
