I believe there's a pay-per-view on the web somewhere. I think it was listed in these forums within the last few days.

Anyone know if Universal Sports will be broadcasting the Tour of Missouri on TV? I do not see it on the schedule on their web site.

Universal is covering both the Vuelta and the ToM. ToM coverage starts tomorrow at 4:30pm EST.

As far as TV, Versus will have daily half hour coverage. Which if similar to previous races will only show about five minutes of racing. They'll be preview jerseys, recap and an interview with some Missouri tourism type to fill the rest of the time.
Universal is supposed to have longer recap shows some weeks in the future.
Universal live web coverage would be the best option if you can pull it off.

The official Tour of Missouri web site is also supposed to have live streaming within a Tour Tracker. Here is a list of options:

didn't see the finish on the Versus coverage either. Possibly the worst sports coverage ever is the coverage of this Tour of Missouri race. Looks like they're shooting with crappy consumer level cameras, the audio is awful, and they placed the finish line camera in place where the crowd blocked the shot and you found out who won AFTER the fact. just plain lousy
