090209 LTDL - Pathetic TV coverage...











I'm pissed, I'm fuming mad... When it comes to cycling, there was this pathetic TV coverage for a mere 15 minutes or so but come entertainment, it can be aired nite & day non stop until your tv set explodes & your eyes popped! Yeah, we'd rather watch our kids jump around like monkeys, hooligans & ignorant idiots at a concert? We're so proud that our kids become glamorous for the wrong reasons? What do we get? Shoot, we spent million for this bloody LTDL, our riders are at par (Well, almost). How the hell do they expect us to excel higher, when sports is not given its due respect? Alah, "Jaguh Kampung" is good enough eh?

So really "Bengang" with the "Bangang" TV coverage, we (Rahimi, Sharul & Me) decided to cover the event ourselves & see it live with our own two eyes. We get to ride for 74km, 1st class view, no tickets required & best of all, its FREE! Details of the race here. 3 Otais, riding the LTDL '09, BBB - Semenyih - Broga - Lenggeng - Bukit Puyoh - Mantin route...

hi,

sharul led me to this blog.

I say, hats off to U people for going down and covering the race for yourselves!

Kudos to you people. Keep up the spirit!

Yeah...Darn..really frustrating the coverage by the tv. This year I went the most to the venues...starting Putrajaya, finishing Bangi, starting The Curve, finishing Shah Alam and KL criterium:-) Previously only Criterium. I don't see the tagline of Sports Tourism being achieved.

mmg very the pathetic tahap nak muntah..

live coverage kat TV pun time nak finish jer.. itupun dlm half hour.. and takde nak interview2 riders pun.. bosan aa.. tak happening langsung..

lucky i get to see on first stage, then in genting, shah alam and kriterium.. puas hati la jugak. nak berita terkini, kena cari sendiri le jwpnya..
