Does anyone still care about pro cycling?

An article in today's New York Times -- "Trying to Dissipate Cloud Over Cycling" -- gives a good overview of the sorry state of pro cycling, just as the season is poised to begin today with the start of the Tour of California.

The sport is in disarray and I know I should probably give up the ghost, but I'm still jealous of my friends from Oregon, who are traveling south this week to watch the race (and also plan to go to Belgium later this year to see some European racing). Being on Alpe d'Huez one day, cheering on the riders who are zipping past, still has a place on the list of things I want to do before I die. I guess that means I still care.
