What, are you provoking purposefully :P? Well maybe because the MB is obviously outnumbered 200-1 with Americans, who therefore obviously have more interest towards Georgia. Plus Georgia had Lance Armstrong - racing at home. Quite frankly, Roger Hammond racing at home doesn't have the same pull.

And America makes the world go round (say some). It's a big country and deserves a big Tour. Plus Georgia was slightly longer than Britain and has more challenging parcours imo.

(But Im British. And I goddamn love the fact we have a national tour to enjoy!)
