Eurosport is reporting that some riders in the centenary Giro D'Italia are tiring of the obsessive media focus on Lance Armstrong. Even the venerable New York Times, which has a history of covering cycling like television covers hockey, is posting daily updates about Giro stages. In the pre-Lance-rides-the-Giro world, the Giro (pro-cycling 2nd biggest event behind Le Tour) rarely rated a mention in the Times.

Michele Scarponi, Giro D'Italia Stage 6 winner, illustrates the extent by which the media is overplaying the lance-a-lot card.(Reuters)
