Instant Gratification

Bettini! A friend sent me a link to a riding-buddy’s pictures from the Giro - instant gratification. When I first started following cycling, you had to wait for Cycle Sport magazine to show up to see the first shots of the race. CyclingNews (then Bill’s CyclingNews with the teal background) usually had the results posted within a couple of days.

Now we get live, streaming video, photos as they happen, and detailed same-day coverage. Add to the standard media sources all the user-driven sites like Flickr, Blogspot, and Twitter and you are surrounded by our sport. Gotta love those interwebs.

Big thanks to the folks at Glacier Bikes for keeping me in their loop.
