Am I the only one who is frustrated with this problem? Since I'm on a rant could someone pleasssse tell me why we don't have any top american riders competing? I am not dissing Kurt Casseli and I wish he could be racing again. R.I.P.

I've been frustrated for years. First with the last 20+ years of piss-poor soccer coverage.
Now with the Dakar coverage. Who knows, in another 20 years they might
start covering what people want, not what the corporates want. But it probably won't start
until we have pure pay-per-view, not "blocks" of what they want us to watch.
