Complaining about OLN

I have OLN and I'll complain.
Why don't they show the latest overall standings after each stage? They only show the stage results (top 5 or 10 finishers). (Like I missed the finish and don't know who won.)

Sure they show the stage winner but don't always show the yellow jersey presentation.

To find out the latest overall standings I have to fire up my s-l-o-w Pentium II and log onto one of the TdF websites.

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.

In mountain stages, they are spread all over the mountain. They will show the top ten if they have finished in time. On the flat stages the peleton gets the same time within the last kilometer, so it is much easier to calculate. Factor in all the time bonuses and it can take awhile.
