It would be nice if ASO realized it, but I would not bet on it
The impact will be felt at dakar.com in reduced website traffic from from U.S. ISP's and IP addresses. Again, that would impact ad revenue, swag, app downloads, etc.
The TV numbers will be difficult to track because NBCSN doesn't subscribe to Nielsen (at least last time I checked they didn't) so there is no way to compare this year's highlights show numbers to last year.
I bet the number of times you've been asked for the link is way down too. :)
I'm sure the ACO will realize the effect. Whether they admit it publicly is anyone's guess.
ASO, ACO. Neither would. They're both French.
i'm pretty sure they realize that but admitting it is another issue
Us americans don't have a horse in this race. Not much interest. Nothing to talk about with my gearhead friends:(.
