S.O.B..I just realized that next Sunday's Mont Ventoux stageWCC

..WILL NOT be carried live on OLN. That's CBS's day for coverage. I think Im gonna throw up. I dont care if CBS has rights to the finale in Paris, but this was the only major Mountain Stage that was gonna be on a weekend and that i was going to be able to watch live.

The OLN tour schedule has live coverage listed for that day. They do not list morning coverage for today. If the reason for no live coverage today is CBS, well screw them. I'm sure the CBS hour of coverage will be a glossing over of the previous weeks stages.

said CBS was on that day. And that they had their night time show. I hope YOU are right and I am wrong.

No live OLN coverage, only the prime-time show. CBS from 2 to 4 Eastern.

My cable company doesn't carry OLN so Sunday coverage is all I get till the tour video comes out. Might I reccomend listening to it on Eurosport like the rest of us do six days a week.

Cable TV = 105. DirectTV = Record.

If you're able to get DirecTV, there is no reason not to. Long term costs are far less than that of anything this side of basic cable. And you get OLN 24/7, which means the tour 4X a day, plus a couple of replays of THIS tour next year.

And of you go with DirecTV with TIVO, then you can easily skip the commercials. Wow.

I wonder if the quality of the CBS commentary will make the naysayers thank the Gods of Cycling for Phil and Paul. Something makes me think this will be the case. (The CBS broadcast is still about 3.5 hours away as I type).

Don't bother to watch the CBS coverage...Djudd

it will be terrible and there will only be a few minutes of today's stage. Most will be Sam Posey-like pieces that are non-sensical -- go for a ride instead

I suppose I am lucky. Since I am stationed in Europe I get eurosport from England and OLN through American Forces Network. I have so many hours of coverage each day I can't watch it all, so I am recording it to watch later in the year. I just wish I would have made it to Lux (40 minutes away) for the prologe, but my wife had other plans for me, sucks.

And neither do we...to have you stationed overseas looking out for this country. Thanks for enlisting once upon a time, and going where they sent you. I hope you get some epic European rides in along the way, the kind we can only dream of.

I've had enough of Tiger this, Barry Bonds that, and Nascar uber alles on channels like ESPN. What does Eurosport show?
