Cycling coverage on Versus

Does anyone know what the cycling coverage will be like on the new "Versus" channel? I seem to remember they had coverage of a lot of races when they were OLN. I only see Tour of CA and The Tour on thier website...which is kinda difficult to navigate.

thanks!

I think they will restart Cyclysm Sunday when the season starts again.

And it will be available on their new HD channel on Comcast.

Ugh... we broke down and bought cable (*shudder*), it gets installed Monday... the A-number-one reason being to watch Cyclysm (not to mention ToC & TdF).

If somebody can actually confirm that Cyclysm Sundays *will* be firing up soon, that would be very good to hear... so far, nothing in the titantv.com listings for tomorrow or the week after on Versus...

Gosh, and I thought when the 'olny lance network' changed their name to Versus the only cycling they were involved with was changing the bulls!

Cool... and we'll be going to see at as many as half of those days in person, so we'll have to try to get home in time to see the recaps on Versus every night!!!!

So... anybody know if Disco is going to run Ivan in the TdC???

Have you read an annoucement about this from Versus?
I hope it turns out to be true but have only read rumors.

Too bad they didn't have the 'Cross Worlds on this weekend. 3 Americans medal! Hopefully they'll run a tape of it in the near future...

No, but they show Versus' other prime-time programming, e.g. Dakar Rally (!), PBR*. And they advertise cycling along with America's Cup et al. on that channel.

Note that I did not say that any events would be in HD (wouldn't that be great!) but it's gonna happen sooner or later.
-

* The channel ("VSGLF") is shared with the Golf Channel, so we'll likely see The Masters live in HD (which wouldn't be a bad thing at all; I don't play, but Augusta National is gorgeous), and a bunch of boring golf events when that season starts, too.
