OLN to Air Baltimore SuperCup Finals Show Feb. 10 NEWTON, Mass. (Jan. 12, 2002) – The Outdoor Life Network will air the 2001 SuperCup finals on Sunday, Feb. 10, at 3 p.m. This 30-minute show is a well-produced highlight show of both the men and women’s SuperCup cyclocross series finals race held Dec. 16 in Baltimore’s Patterson Park. The show is the result of a three-year partnership between Broganer Productions/Global Television Network and Kiron Group, which promotes the SuperCup. The show was produced by David Broganer, based in Acton, Mass. “We’re excited about this show because of how many things went so well in Baltimore,” said Lyle Fulkerson, president of Kiron Group that promotes the SuperCup. “We had good crowds, great weather and perhaps the most exciting SuperCup of all time.” Fulkerson said the ultimate goal of the Kiron Group has been to bring world-class cyclocross to American television. “I saw cyclocross at the 1995 nationals saw great opportunity,” said Fulkerson. “I realized that for television the crowd is as important as the race. And nothing, nothing tops a SuperCup crowd.” “I just helped with the commentary but I saw the final production,” said Richard Fries, SuperCup race announcer. “These guys poured a lot of production value into this. That started by having five cameras at the event and went right through the editing process.” The SuperCup cyclocross series is North America’s premier cyclocross race series. The 2001 series had stops in Gloucester, Mass.; Chicago and Baltimore. Sponsors of the series included Saturn, Clif Bar, Festina USA, Selle Italia, Graber Products, Time Sport USA, and Velo News.
