Hey, the American Tour websites pale in comparison to the other European Tour coverage online. Go to http://www.lequipe.fr/Cyclisme/itw_heras.html to hear Roberto Heras speak in English...never heard him speak ever! There's also George Hincapie and Floyd Landis on the www.lequipe.fr site. French site with lots of good stuff. The Germans don't skimp out either with http://www.zdf.de/ZDFde/inhalt/21/0,1872,2020085,00.html
A little biased toward Zabel and Ullrich...but they're good guys. http://www.eurosport.com/home/pages/V3/L0/multimedia_Lng0.shtml is good too and it's an English. Always a plus. Having a broadband/DSL connection helps as well. Any other good Tour clips websites, let me know!

Go to www.letour.fr and select the french option (there are also clips from OLN coverage in the english section). In the french section, check out the right-hand bar and select "images and videos" and you will see many clips otherwise unavailable on english-speaking web sites. Check out Jegou's motorcycle-bike crash yesterday! Notice how Pascal Lino's lightening-fast reflexes in the car immediately following the breakaway prevents this minor incident from becoming a major catastrophe. Pascal Lino, btw, was a pretty good cyclist in his day having worn the yellow jersey and won a stage in the TDF.

Also, by going to the french language eurosport page you will also get some unique clips -- like 6 minutes of Alain Bondue puzzling over the infamous FSA aero chainring set-up w/ his head mechanic and Millar's pissed-off commentary.

Also, for those in France (or able to pose as such), you can have access to a live video feed of the race as it is broadcast on french television -- which means several hrs a day (@ 1.69 euro's an hr). Money well spent for me as I have been checking out the last hr. of the past few stages!

A+
