I thought the Versus Roubaix coverage sucked. Way worse than in the past-and not because it wasn't live. They just seemed to cut away so much at key times and come back 5K later. Waiting all week and then getting that sucked. Specialized got the most for their advertising dollars and seeing Bettini and Boonen commericals on US TV was funny. I suppose I should be stoked their was any coverage, but I am not.
It was impressive that Kevin Neirynck from Landbouwkrediet(in the video up there) didn't go flying over that guy and stayed on his feet. Even more impressive was after that crash he still managed 42 place -11 minutes down!
