Tour coverage, as it comes in.

So if your into the Tour De France and don't have cable, but can get online, like me...there are a few options for viewing.

First is the
Versus Network online

They have some live feeds and recaps including:

Thor Hushovd, from Norway, winning stage 2 today.

Another good source for live feeds is:

and for print news:

if you want maps of each stage you can go to this google maps page

For viewing in NYC, the Lakeside Lounge is airing coverage on Versus, located at 126 Ave. B. between 10th and 11th st.

I believe it is coverage during happy hour, starting when they open around 4:00pm. So for all of you who get off work in time or aren't working...this works out great for you. At least it shows they are a cycling friendly bar.

Personally I prefer downloading coverage of ITVN broadcasts of daily recaps. Its a one hour show on British TV, that has just enough of the stages along with insightful reporting and color commentary. Hopefully it will be available on torrent sites like but I wouldn't know anything about that.

Its generally a day late, so if you can keep you head out of the headlines and wait, its worth it.
