    It's on Universal Sports Network. Unfortunately, my provider (Comcast) doesn't have it. There are usually ways to get to it online, but they often require installing something on the computer which I'm loathe to do.

    ITV4 here on all providers, freesat/sky/freeviwe/virgenmedia its on all the providers here in the UK, so many you could go on itv4 website and watch it, although KT will be orientated to the UK and cover it from a UK style, such as foucus on the UK riders but many it might be fun to watch from a different perspedtive

    Thanks, Mark. USN is Channel 625 on DirecTV... which I don't currently get. Maybe it's available a la carte.

    USN is part of a package. If you're a DirecTV customer try calling them and seeing about adding it. They often do 'specials' where you could get that package very cheaply for the first few months, and can drop it afterwards, IIRC.

    USN is only standard definition though, which (to me) really suffers by comparison to HD. And from watching some of the Vuelta last year, the actual TV work is not up to the standards of the Tour: fewer cameras, etc. It's certainly shot HD though, so it could be broadcast that way, it just isn't.
    I never think I have hit hard, unless it rebounds.
