I know cycling has gotten a bad wrap lately. And it deserves it. Many of my friends and fellow racers have completely abandoned watching racing at the pro level. Who cares what those dopers are doing? Right? Not really. Cycling is not a sport we grew up with and the tactics, form, etc. all are certainly not second nature for us to understand. So even if you don’t want to cheer for the cheats (and who does?), it is important to study your chosen sport. There is so much to learn. Everything from how to race as a team to positioning in a sprint.
So I still watch pro cycling. I have to admit it, I even enjoy it most of the time.
