    Where can I watch the tour of france online this year?

    Hey there, I'm out of the country this summer, and I'm trying to figure out how I can watch full coverage of the tour de france. Anyone have on-line viewing suggestions?

    What country are you going to be in? Internet access to sporting events is very country-dependent.

    I'm in Finland, but I have an USA VPN, so I can easily get an american IP address (aka internet sites think I'm in the United States.)

    But can you get enough bandwidth to watch video through your VPN? It's a long ways from Finland to Boston. I used the Versus Tour Tracker last year and it worked well for me, though other people had problems.

    I live in Argentina, and can almost always get a few streams for each race from www.cyclingfans.com and/or www.steephill.tv
