Can't wait to see the 5 minutes of coverage tomorow on public TV. Its going to suck waiting until 9pm to actually see the stage since it coudl be a very decisive stage.

I'm getting start to finish coverage on Eurosport tomorrow. Today ran almost the entire length as well.

The networks Sunday coverage burns me to no end..... Sure, the Tour is getting more exposure and thats just great. However, Then, we normally have OLN covering every stage live (albeit not in its entireity) but Sundays the network swoops in with crappy coverage and a 5 minute re-cap of one of the most critical stages of the entire tour.

To top it off the prime time coverage on OLN during the Sundays with network coverage is only 2 hours, not like todays 3 1/2 hour extravaganza which was live. So, in the end we get jerked around by both networks! Its enough to make me want to move back to Spain so I can get Eurosport!

hey, i'm here in portland and my cable provider doesnt even have oln. at least i cant find it listed anywhere on my expanded cable package. its driving me nuts, especially because this is such a great tour.
am i missing something, or are us portland tour fans just out of luck when it comes to tv coverage of the race? is there just no way to get any sort of decent coverage here in portland. (i just moved here a month ago and had no idea i'd not have access to oln.)
