Subject: Question: What was it about US stage races in the 80's and 90's?

Question: While I have heard laments about the demise of the good old USA stage races (Tour Dupont, Coors Classic, Thrift Drug Triple Crown, etc.), what I want to know is, what was it about the climate surrounding cycling and/or business then that is different than today?

Was pro cycling "better known" in those days? Was it the caliber of US riders (surely not), did big business have more money to spend for brand awareness; how was it that the races attracted European talent as well? These are just some thoughts. I am interested in your opinions.
