Just catch it on OLN or hit the highlights at You KNOW it will be on their today. Maybe even in the US news.

DAMN....they can make it up later in the race...but did they HAVE to wait for them. I am not the coach and who am I (or you) to second guess.

For this race, the l'Alpe d'Huez, the uphill TT, the last day in the Pyrenees, and the final TT. SKIP SKIP SKIP Cmon man once in a lifetime man and watch it live, no rerun.

PS Postal is still 2nd overall only 22 seconds off 1st place
