Watching the "Road to Paris" on OLN. I hope they offer this on video/dvd at some point. This is gonna be a classic.

and thought it was pretty cool. I didn't catch the Paris-roubaix on OLN (didn't have it yet) but I really felt for George Hincapi coming that close to winning but having 4 riders from one team around you out of 6 rider.

I really liked the end of the show where they are showing lance training in the mountains. It must have been 35 degrees, raining and snowing and he is smiling as he climbs the mountains. That man is a training stud.

I may try and catch it again tonight.

copy of Road to Paris. I cannot get OLN and it is bad enough I cannot watch the TDF. I will pay someone for the tape, shipping and their time (within reason). I willl have to settle for CBS 1 hour specials on saturdays for the TDF. At least ESPN was every night regardless of quality of coverage. I live in NJ and CABLEVISION SUCKS. I have had enough disappointment in my life but this is inhumane. Please help me.

I'm also a NJ Cablevision subscriber. I'm just outside of Trenton. I sent so many E-Mail requests for OLN that they sent me a letter apologizing and blah blah blah.

The only reason I haven't gotten the Dish is because I got the Optimum Online cable modem service. Had I known a year ago, I would have found another internet provider and gotten the Dish for the TV.

I have friends that live ten minutes away from me that tell me how great OLN is every chance they get. Frustration is mounting.

Luckily, I did catch the "Road to Paris" when it aired over the weekend on one of the network stations. Had no idea it was on. Just happened to turn the TV on and there it was.

I live in NJ too and I have neither cable nor dish, but I will try to get a dish sooner or later....

You also missed it on CBS!!! They had it on Saturday, June 23rd at about 3pm in the afternoon.. I saw just by sheer luck as I was coming back from seeing Shrek and was flipping the channels while I was taking off my shoes...

CBS made in conjuction with OLN, in fact it was on last Saturday on CBS. I'm sure they'll repeat it before the Tour. If not I have it on tape, but I'm in Colorado. It was a great documentary!
Hope they release a copy with cut footage'Ragin Asian

They followed them for 27 days, so I hope they release a video/dvd that's like 4 hours long...what they showed is probably 1/100 of the footage they got!

Obviously someone put some work into this site, although if you're connecting through a 56k modem it will take some time...

Nike is funding this documentary. I would bet dollars to donuts it will be for sale at some point...

Here's Nike's press release...

announcer that doesn't think bike racing is a sport. This was the absolute best "production" video I've ever seen about cycling. Seeing inside the team car during a race was very cool.
