Strava posts up my stage 3, the first real and unadulterated-by-weather stage of the Tour of California.
Have you read the headlines on various _____news.com sites about Tour of California? They are what I might call rote. Or predictable. Sure, they exhibit traditional, classic journalism and cover the likely news in the coming stages. “So and So says stage four will be decisive” or “This Dude looks to put stamp on race in coming mountain stages.” I know that. You know that. So and So and Dude both know that. They should write something much more colorfully dramatic; now here’s a headline: “Looking at the profile, taken with enough speed Joe Sprinter can leap directly from Hamilton Summit onto Sierra finish!”
Or “How many times can people ask Ben King if he is Ted and vise versa?”
Or best yet, “Tour of California looks for massive tarp sponsor to cover entire state. Need ingenious yet basic method to keep roads dry.”
Just an idea. For now I’ll stick to bike racing and out of journalism.
