They are still covering the Vuelta and Giro. Just not live during the day. To be honest, I never watched the live coverage. I have a day job. I watched the primetime coverage. That was plenty for me.

They didn't have live or Primetime coverage of the past Vuelta. This shouldn't be surprising. If they provide primetime wrap-up of each day's events, I'll be happy.

I see nothing other than the races listed. There's no info on what type of coverage there will be. Where are you getting this info.
They showed live Vuelta coverage last year. nmAsiago

I don't feel sorry for you guys. Here in Canada OLN has a Canadian version (as do many specialty networks, the government makes them) and other than the TDF there is no bike coverage. Good ole gov, forcing fishing reruns on us while you guys get bike stuff because the fish stuff was shot in Canada in 1980 or something, thus Canadian content.

Fox Sportsworld Canada is even worse.

I know it doesn't look good, but remember what the OLN schedule looked like this time last year? I would not be surprised to see some changes. So long as they show daily coverage I'll be happy, and it appears they will have daily coverage.
