    NBC coverage

    Well is appears the Ardennes will not be broadcast on TV this year. So if you want to watch you'll have to find it on line somewhere. It's looking like that may be the case for la Vuelta as well.

    I guess now may be the time to say goodbye to the sport.

    Are you talking about Fleche Wallone and Liege Bastogne Liege? Cause they're on NBCsports cycling pass subscription on Roku.

    If you're wanting TV coverage...it is almost never on TV. Lots of streaming options tho. Main thing is getting passed region blocking and exclusives.

    Apparently NBC did finally update NBCSports so they are showing FW and LBL tape delayed (which I expected that). Guess they didn't want to put them on the schedule until they were sure the races were going to happen.

    I wasn't referring to Gold (or cycling pass) I was referring to on TV on on NBC Sports or Olympic Channel.

    Currently it's appearing that so far la Vuelta isn't going to be on TV. Maybe it will end up on TV, but right now it's not.

    If it's like past years, it will be, hour and a half, two hour shows broadcast at 2 in the morning.

    Ah, and the TV currently only shows until about noon on the first day. Thanks, that makes sense.

    I'm shocked Paris-Tours is on at like 11am this Sunday. Not exactly sure how that happened.

    What time? Right now my Dish "TV Guide" goes to 1pm on Sunday the 18th. NBC Sports has Premier League soccer from like 6am through the time the guide shows. The Olympic channel is showing the Worlds for some reason.

    Hopefully since you have it showing it, it'll show up here soon.

    Heard that as well. So it should show up eventually before I have to manually set a timer for it.

    I've heard if you Google "TizCycling Live" you may be able to watch most all the European races. I've heard that, but of course I cannot confirm this. I certainly didn't watch the Giro and Gent-Wevelgem today that way. That would be wrong.

    Sorry, Olympic Channel. Very early mornings starting 10/20 with additional repeat showing(s) later. I choose to watch the early showings to avoid accidentally running into spoilers. US news doesn't usually report on bike races but France 24 news does.
