So what is the CapTech Classic? It’s a bike race that happens in Richmond, Va. Like the bike race here in Philly, it has a lot of professional presence. Unlike the Philly Bike race, it is really boring and the course is just sad. But you know what? Unlike the Philly bike race this year, the coverage on OLN was so good that I watched every last second of the race and thoroughly enjoyed it.
There were cameras all over the course, motorcycles with cameras, professional commentary, the works. There even was a 2 minute infomercial in the middle of it for Richmond. Richmond. Are you getting this? Not that Richmond is a pathetic city, but compared to Philly it really shouldn’t be getting event coverage that is light years better.
The city should be ashamed at how poor our coverage was. I was ok with this at first, thinking, well, we don’t deserve good coverage since America doesn’t care much about cycling, but that until I saw this damn race on OLN on Saturday! What the hell man?
