my DVR didn't record day one of the Tour of Ireland, so...

...is there a re-airing of the day? usually VERSUS does it, but i don't see it on the schedule...sucks!

i've been waiting weeks for this...i'll see the next two days, but i wish i could see the coverage, not just the highlights...

looks like the coverage is sparse anyways...missed it, but perhaps not much to miss.

You really didn't miss much.
The only coverage I'm seeing is one hour, once a day.

While I'm greatful that they're showing the race at all, I have to admit that, after the Tour, watching the Tour of Ireland feel like it's the Reader's Digest version of the race.

Live tracker

If you don't want to wait to see the delayed TV coverage, I just saw that cyclingfans put up a live tracker for the Tour of Ireland. Here's the link: http://cyclingfans.com/node/471
