    Listen or view Live?

    It is 05:30h, the race started 2hr ago. I would think that OLN would not loose to much between 02:30h and 06:00h if they would show the race live or even with a few minutes delay but this cr** bites The leaders are already 120km into the race and I can not listen or watch live. Is there any network that has "REAL" live coverage here in the states either radio, tv or internet?

    I remember when I was in Denmark they had a channel dedicated to the "Tour de France" and I could watch the stages compleat from start to end with no commercials at all.

    Even French tv doesn't broadcast the entire length of stages. For instance, racing in today's stage from Chateaubriant to Saint-Brieuc started at 10:50 AM, but live coverage on France2 didn't start until 2:05 PM.

    I'm as hardcore a cycling fan as anyone, but not even I'm going to watch 5 hours of a peloton riding tempo while a doomed breakaway dreams of winning the stage.

    I sometimes complain about Al, Kirsten and Cutters, but think about it: We get live coverage of every stage! You're probably too young to remember the days when we all we had was 1 hour of CBS sunflower footage on Sunday afternoon. Or when you had to wait for Velo News or the daily paper to find out who won.

    This is like a dream come true and I for one am enjoying it while I can.
