Daily Tour De France Updates on Fox Sports NetworksPoulidor

I don't know whether this is generally known, but Fox Sports Network is carrying a 30 minute recap of the each stage of the Tour De France. The commentators are Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen. I live in Kansas and it is running at noon. Try to find it. I am ecstatic, because I can't get OLN and I thought I'd have to get by with the online updates and the audio simulcast from OLN. Cheers.
Has this been on all week,? Thank YouLazyrider

I just turned FOX Sports on after reading your post and there was Lance in the TTT powering up to the finish in yesterday's stage. Better late than to never see it. I looked on FOX internet site and there was no mention of their 1/2 hour coverage. Was it on all week? My TV guide said it was but oh well, I watched the internet audio and video feeds. CBS has a 1 hour special on Sunday at 5pm eastern time, but double check. The next 1/2 hour on FOX was listed as per Yahoo tv listings for us who can't get OLN are

I only caught it as of yesterday but they apparently have been broadcasting since the prologue. They are broadcasting it with a one day delay. So you will be seeing yesterday's stage today, etc. Anyway, I just thought I would mention it since I'm sure I'm not the only one who thought he was SOL without OLN. Cheers.

What time zone are you in? I actually went and bought a TV Guide today (against my religion) and can't find the TDF on FSN (I am in Rocky Mtn. Zone).

This is eastern time. Hope you find it. Watch CBS on sunday for an hour special of the first week. It should be a good wrap up and to be honest the tour really hasn't been that exciting yet except the TTT. Next week starts the real stuff and if you can see it be it a day late, it is better than nothing. A half hour was all we got from ESPN anyway for how many years! Hope you find it. I have been listening live and watching live video feeds via european t.v. on the net as well. Next year I will get a dish.
Watch it everyday...bigbon
