Golf fans are weird. Look at all the analysis that is involved here. "Tracking Tiger", "Match Play Hot Shots", Photos, "Rewinds", the "Fox Sports Poll" and an extensive "Talkback" section. Furthermore, the actual article is about 500 words, which for a cycling synopsis would be pretty good. Check out VeloNew's coverage of the Tour of Qatar, the first big stage race of the year. Whats it, like, 200 words?
Cycling needs more serious coverage. VeloNews is capable, but possibly pandering to a reader thats not able to decipher contemplative read-ins or dialogues about team tactics. Well, forget them. They'll learn or they can keep reading Stuart O'Grady's cartoons. If cycling is going to get stepped up, it needs to be in an intellectual development of the coverage.
