Not sure about this year, but last St Honore and Lucky Lab showed coverage.

Now let's see how many riders get popped by OP a day before the race... Oy.

Ya, it would be great to have a list of venues that are showing it. I think we're just two weeks away or so aren't we?

Didn't the Bike Gallery open early during the Tour and show it last year? Or, was that because Landis was leading?

On cable, it's on the Versus Channel (Comcast channel 32, I believe).

With Sinkewitz, Moreni, Vino, and now the yellow jersey Rasmussen all gone, is anyone caring anymore? I've followed the tour religiously since the mid eighties, not even Festina made me question the way I'm questioning now. What a farce.

On cable, it's on the Versus Channel (Comcast channel 32, I believe).Yes, but it's on very early-- coverage started at 3:30 AM this morning, most days it's 5 or 5:30 AM. Easier to catch the evening re-broadcast at about 5 or 6 PM.

If you're a DVR person, all of the live morning broadcasts have been running long, so set it up to record the next time slot (bull riding or people kicking each others faces in) if you want to catch the finish.

Or watch the edited evening coverage, complete with Bob Roll's inane banter. :)

St. Honore opens up at 6 a.m.--they have it TiVoed, so you'll be able to watch the coverage from the beginning.

It gets quite crowded there, and you can hardly hear the TV, but it's lots of fun. I've met some nice people from sharing tables...
