Taylor Phinney from the US just won the 4000 pursuit… It was a fun one, he led at 2000 by 0.3 only to have the aussie come back at him and take the lead at about 3000-3250ish, by less than a tenth. In the end Phinney won by over half a sec I think.
Universal Sports is an extra NBC channel on the HD spectrum. Not every city has it, but if you do, it’ll be whatever channel NBC is plus another number. So if NBC is channel 5, then it’ll be channel 5-3 or something. I have it where I live but am yet to see any World Championship track cycling, though there is plenty of downhill skiing 24-7.
You say that like it’s a bad thing. Downhill skiing is the ultimate badass sport.
Whenever the dumbfuck “extreme sports” people brag about how they come down hills on skateboards or whatever at 40 or 50 mph, images of dh skiers flash in my mind. They do 75+ on those bumpy slopes, cornering like a mofo with their ass almost touching the ground, sometimes in poor visibility. And they are not out to get down alive, they are out to beat the other guy by 0.1 sec.
I mean, what is more badass than crashing like this and then winning 2 olympic gold medals a couple of days later?
