And in addition to that, we get a 30 minute highlight show right after work, plus every sports segment with the news on TV or radio has a bit about the Tour. I think at least one of the morning shows on TV also does a 15-ish minute segment on the Tour too.
I thought the coverage might be specific to each TV station because ours seems to focus mainly on the breakaway group, next on the leaders, then on the Aussies and Canadians in the group, and finally on anything "interesting" that might be going on, like crashes, or someone doing really well, or something. Last year, for example, we had a lot of coverage of Nairo Quintana.
But, as another example, I didn't realise Tejay van Garderen was in this year's Tour until just the other day when an announcer commented that he came across the line 4th or 5th or something. They hardly ever talk about him. However, I'm guessing that if I were watching the TDF on an American station, he might be their focus.
