    Olympic cycling on the TV

    I'd like to set my recorder to capture the cycling events shown on the TV (as I do with TdF) but I haven't found a clear schedule to use for timer programming.

    Does anyone know if there is one?

    Thanks - good link! If you click on the "TV listings" tab on the top, and select Saturday 8/9, it looks like there is coverage from 10:00 - 10:30am, 12:30 - 1:00pm, and 2:30 - 3:30pm (Eastern).

    Could care less about the Olympics, particularly when held in a country that treats its people like crap and pollutes the world like the Chinese do. Screw 'em. I'm not watching any of it.
