Here are two more sources:

Yahoo Cycling News
http://sports.yahoo.com/sc

Outdoor Life Network Cyclism
http://www.olntv.com/htmlpage.asp?htmlid=24

You can also pay a few bucks and watch the OLN coverage real-time every day on the Internet. They're showing two hours of same-day coverage on cable TV every Saturday and Sunday at 5pm EST.

I have broadband, but I've passed on the daily streaming coverage. I'm satisfied with the online text coverage on weekdays and the OLN TV coverage on the weekends.

I think OLN has done a nice job with their television coverage, although I've seen a few complaints on ther BikeForums because they're not offering all day/every day coverage. When you consider the tiny market share generated by cycling enthusiasts, you have to respect the significant programming commitment made by OLN.

Try that URL for live video- commentary in italian but it's not like you can't figure out what's going on!
