Pro cycling media coverage increased

At the recent Critérium du Dauphiné Libéré, 185 journalists (written, radio-TV and photographers) were accredited, which is a significant increase in media presence compared to previous years, in which the average was around 100.

This positive trend was also recorded at the Tour de Suisse: 180 journalists (around twenty more than in 2004) covered the race, and TV channels from 9 countries (Belgium, Denmark, Germany, France, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and Japan) showed daily coverage. It should be noted that Danish, Japanese, and Norwegian TV broadcast the event for the first time. "Highlights", a selection of key moments in the race, were shown in 130 countries, including the US, Australia and South Africa.
