just makes everything seem so much nicer to tune out every morning and take in some cycling on the tube.

dig the podium chicks in the telefonica dresses, all the teams are different with riders i have not heard of, the veulta is more of a guessing game as to who or which team will triumph, and even the helicopter transmissions seem to have less interference in their satelite coverage.

how exciting was todays finish !!!!!

ahhhh the vuelta comes to the rescue again. was almost going to email OLN to ask why they hadnt rerun the TdF as they did last year. i know, i know i could have taped it or bought the dvd but i like just switching the tube on after breakfast and watching it. soemtimes working from home has its advantages.

when OLN broadcasts cycling coverage i end up riding more. no late nights boozing as im hitting the sack early just to ride in the morning before the telecast and then again later in the day after lunch.

Liggot's voice is as soothing to my ears as the noise of my freewheel, the wind in my ears and the sound of a perfect shift when out of the saddle and climbing (getting better at it - friction ya know).

It is an excellent way to spend a Sunday morning when you're riding later in the afternoon.

"cheeky move" count
Phil - 2
Paul - 1

Just love that

I thought I had seen Di Luca flash across the screen and I called it right before Phil and the boys did. Then, they insist and my wife starts to snicker at the "expert". I win and life is sweet with OLN in the morning!!

it was obviously Di Luca and that was a finish that suited him! I don't know where they got Sacchi from (it also wasn't Teutenberg (Phonak) or Petacchi (Fassa Bortolo), so all in all, they botched that call big time). They also kept talking about Sevilla being in a position to take over the lead when he was off the front, when Azevedo was right there with him and would have in fact taken over the GC lead.
