Tour of the Basque Country (Spoiler Alert)

Anyone got a live feed in the U.S. for this? What's the European coverage like? It's not a race that seems to be mentioned around here much, but Universal Sports Network is showing same-day coverage.

Stage 1 was pretty interesting yesterday with Contador, Cunego and some other folks looking to make a run, but everything came together for the sprinters at the line. I guess it's more of a training race for the big names, right? That bump at the finish line was pretty interesting, too.

Some big names in this race. Stage one was exciting for sure. is the site I think I use for streaming the race but it's sketchy.

If you haven't already found live streaming, has several options available in the US.

I wasn't paying attention to it as much as the Northern classics this past week but it looks like it shook out in somewhat predictable fashion; to note however that Contador's TT is more and more solid. Colom is shining over at Katusha; Evans' fitness is probably where he wants it to be at the moment; Luis Leon Sanchez looks like he's got this year's white jersey in the bag.

I watched it daily on Universal Sports, a cable channel available in some areas. No idea of what cable companies offer it in which areas. It appears that they are now carrying as much or more cycling coverage than Versus.
