FROM THE ABA: The American Bicycle Association and NBC Universal Sports are proud to announce an exclusive four year agreement to televise ABA events and the 2009 UCI Continental events.

The ABA is experiencing steady growth in membership and will continue growing and building upon the great success of BMX racing’s 2008 Olympic debut. The ABA and NBC Universal Sports will deliver over 20 hours of programming per year for the next four years to an ever growing NBC Universal Sports audience of over 40 million homes. With BMX emerging as the newest Olympic action sport in 2008, and with the American’s claiming three of the first six BMX Olympic medals ever awarded, the ABA is poised for tremendous growth leading up to the 2012 Olympics in London.

I have been watching the UCI coverage on the NBC digital channel for about 3 months now. I enjoy the coverage. But sometimes it leaves something to be desired in the color commentary. One of the announcers usually know nothing about cycling. Hopefully w/ a more regular coverage this will improve.
