    Now what are we 'spose to do?

    Man, the Giro was good, so glad Universal Sports carried the broadcast, but now it's over, I feel like I've punctured and have no team car...not even a spare tube. Left to wonder if I can make it to July 4th.

    Ride your bike.

    Hill repeats, and work on your Time Trial form.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    Be sure to let Universal know you watched. We need all the coverage we can get!

    The infamous Manayunk Wall, I loved every lap last year! Watching the riders climb Mt. Penn in Reading was great, but nothing compares to the taunting crowds of the Manayunk Wall. One big block party! I am sorry I will miss it this year. Enjoy

    Another good one. I'd love to see Philly. It would have been a shame if the race had have folded.

    Johnny C ... I'm sure the "yanks" have bells ringing ... point being they don't get to watch these on TV as you can with a Eurosport UK or French satellite feed.

    Unless you want to sign up for some streaming and try to watch it via the web - but from what I've read posted by others, it really doesn't rival what the VS (or whatever that network is called these days) or Eurosport can do with commentary and coverage.

    Besides - don't we all want to watch those copter fly-by shots of landscape in hi-def!

    Dauphine Libere is on now with some of the same mountain stages as in the tour. It's sort of a tour preview and very exciting. Also Contador is racing it, so it'll be interesting to see his form.

    http://www.cyclingfans.com has links to live streams worldwide.
