Versus will have a hard time keeping viewership with the types of sports they show. I found the cage fighting promos a real turnoff during the TdF shows. You have to be pretty violent natured to watch those combatants beating and kicking the hell out of each other.
Of course, while I loved to watch the competitiveness of a mountain climb or sprint, I winced every time there was a crash. It reminded me of the last road rash experience.

That's R*** R*** my friend... heh heh...
Now I have to go shave my legs, just to ward off the evil spirits...:-)
For years, until ?(Was part of Tour de Romandie most recently), tomorrow would be the day of 'A Travers Lausanne', a great historic, revived classic Post-Tour event, that recently has featured Pantani, Armstrong, Hamilton and others, in a match of two identical TT runs, featuring lakeside flats and a STEEP mother climb through Lausannes 15-20% hills (some good looking legs on lady-bikes there!)
So I'd be going to see the Tour survivors, seeking to win a bit more summertime cash...

The daily crashes that took place at this year's TDF was astounding. I can also relate to crash and burn.
