I just checked the Yahoo TV Listings for my area (Mpls.) It looks like there is a 1/2 hour "Tour de France" highlights at 10AM CST every day this week. No further description is given. The curious thing is that it says that it was previously aired Jan 6, 2001????? We'll see what happens tomorrow AM.
