How about if some of our techno-savvy neighbors to the north were to record OLN's broadcast of Sunday's stage at Ventoux and post it somewhere on the web for us to check out?

Don't feel too bad. I'm leaving Wednesday evening for a family wedding in PEI, Canada. Not to return till late Sunday night. I'm going to miss the early mountain stages and Ventoux, where there should be some great racing. Thank heaven for multiple VCRs in the house! I'm going to be buried in taped coverage to catch up on when I get home.

At least we're bringing bikes on the trip... It's the Daddy bike with child seat, not my road bike, but at least I'll be riding in the beautiful rolling hills...
They're still showing Ventoux on Sunday night...Wayne

I am currently tapinf all the OLN segments (yes each and every one) and have been trying to find a place to post then - but its a lot of bandwith to post 2 hours of video - maybe I'll sell them???
according to the OLN website...mr_spin

OLN's schedule shows Stage 14 at 9:30 am ET. I don't know if they are screwed up or they are really showing it live, but there it is.

By the way, according to the same listing, these are the broadcast start times for the other mountain stages:

stage 11 - 8:30am ET (one hour earlier)
stage 12 - 8:30am ET
stage 16 - 7:30am ET (two hours earlier!!!)
stage 17 - 8:30am ET

Looks like another 4:30am wakeup call...
Depends where on the site you go ...Merckx fan

If you go to OLN's Tour de France home page and follow the link to the daily TV schedule from there it shows a prime-time show only for Mont Ventoux. You have the correct info for stages 11,12, 16 & 17
