the Tour de France out here on the West Coast,
What channel?? I’ve been looking and can’t find it on satellite!!!
Same place it’s been for quite a few years now. Versus channel (#151 on Dish Network), which up to 2 years ago was ‘Outdoor Life Network’ (OLN).
Stage 1 starts tomorrow morning at 8:30 am Eastern time (5:30 am Pacific). Today was the Prologue; a 10 mi (15.5 km) individual time-trial. Interesting course in Monaco (some of the same streets they race the Formula 1 Grand Prix on). Lance did OK, but not as good as he expected; same with Levi and Alberto. Fabian Cancellara (Switzerland) had the shortest time, so will be the 1st Yellow Jersey wearer.
A lot of new, updated designs on th TT bikes this year; more so than I seen in the past. Much more streamlining. Oh, and they’re finally going to have a Team Time Trail this year. I’ve been bummed the last few years they haven’t included that discipline in the Tour. It’s one of my favorites to watch.
