    is there any radio coverage for the cyclists? we can only hear the runners.

    • bernews says:

      We don’t think so…but we are not 100% sure. We have someone in the lead vehicle coming down with the cyclists, so should at least have some photos..but we won’t be able to get those up to much later.

      • Get a grip says:

        Thanks. how disappointing. Thank God for you Bernews. If you are able to get info on the front cyclists it would be great. thanks

            Does anyone have results because they have not given anything more than a brief nod to the cyclists?
