I'd always been one against Sky taking on cycling as i believe it should be a free to air sport, but just lately i'm getting more and more frustrated with the coverage that is available.
With Sky being a major sponsor of GB cycling and having their own pro team, is it not about time they had a dedicated cycling channel?
Show EVERYTHING, but let ITV and Eurosport still show the Grand Tours
The reason i bring this up, I like to watch track cycling as much as i do road and cross, BUT in the UK, the only major coverage left is of road. I have to hit the internet for most other events, cross has a big following in the flat countries and is televised, so could quite easily be shown over here and track normally gets air time somewhere, so there is always a feed, meaning that there must be TV coverage to hook up to.
What are your thoughts?
The reason i posted today is i've just seen the World Para-Cycling Championship results, GB doing great
