Cycling fans were worried when Discovery took over Eurosport, thankfully what that meant was a dramatic increase of the quality of their cycling coverage.
Agree; for too long it was all a bit amateur, especially when you compared it to other sports. I subscribe to the Eurosport Player, rather than GCN as I get the WEC, MXGP, Ski-ing (and other winter sports) among other sports. Saying that, there has been dismay amongst Mountain bike fans, as Discovery will take over the MTB World Cup from next season. Currently on free Red Bull TV, and it's hard to believe they will improve on what we currently get, and will likely be pay to view.
Will be interesting to see how it works out; one thing is surely certain; the cost will go up.
