The Tour de Georgia team presentation was held tonight in Savannah. It was fun to preview the teams; however, it was an odd affair.
While I understand the motivation for a charity event (charging accordingly), it seems like it would have better served the sport to host an open event which welcomed everyone with an interest in cycling. (And ultimately, wouldn't bringing more people to the sport generate more value for the charity and sponsors?) This had lots of politicos, sponsors and what I assume were Savannah's most charitable but not a lot of fans.
And another odd thing - the biggest cheers were for the Rock Racing guys.
