Is OLN carrying any cycling coverage this year? I can't find anything on their website.
Tune in during the month o' July. Don't know if they're putting any Spring racing coverage on there, although I think this subject has been flogged to death over in General. Check out that thread over there. Not sure if there is any pertinent info in there as I didn't look at it before. But I think OLN bought rights to le Tour until out to 07 maybe?turbomatic73 said:
There are 2 months worth of calendars on the OLN site re: program schedules. In March, on Sunday the 19th, there is a 5:00 pm listing for Milan-San Remo, followed by a program featuring Tirreno Adriatico. On the following Sunday at 5:00, there is a program note for Paris-Nice.turbomatic73 said:
I am guessing things ARE ironed out and they won't cover much of anything. Their calender has never been an accurate indication since they cancelled stuff repeatedly.giovanni sartori said:ESPN II will be covering the Tour of Cali with Bob Roll and Paul Sherwen. Saw Bob Roll a couple weeks ago and someone asked about OLN and he danced around the question so my guess is some things aren't ironed out yet.
Could always watch stuff on cycling.tvterzo rene said:Velonews published OLN's schedule as well. I have to say my wife is more committed to me than OLN is to cycling and she left me 5 years ago.
That great Giro deal that everyone was making a deal about is nothing more than a low quality PPV webcast. RAI International is going to show more coverage in just their MSR live show than OLN is for the entire spring so F OLN and their bullriding, puck flicking, BBQ death match, reality show ******* programming. Bout time I learned me one of them thar ferrin languages anyhows.
MAG for the first time I agree, I try to at least TIVO every race on TV so I can do my part for the ratings, and hoping it will get more popular for other networks to carry.magnolialover said:Could always watch stuff on cycling.tv
Being in America, we're pretty damn lucky to be getting the coverage that we do get from OLN, in my honest opinion. In a country dominated by ball sports, I think we're pretty lucky to get just some of it.
I knew we could come to an agreement about something out there. I on the TiVo train as well, love it, wouldn't want to have TV without it these days. The only thing I have to say about poker is, so hot right now (Zoolander reference). I've already got the Tour of California on record for next week, so I can catch the highlights. Cycling.tv is a good website, hard to watch sometimes unless you have one of those large assed flat monitors for your computer, but you can get live coverage on there for most races. It's hard to market tris and cycling in the US, it's not "exciting" enough for most people, and as I've said before, I have a hard time watching races, as they normally put me into slumber, and I actually like bike racing. Know what I mean?Vel07 said:MAG for the first time I agree, I try to at least TIVO every race on TV so I can do my part for the ratings, and hoping it will get more popular for other networks to carry.
I dont want to seem like I am bashing America but ESPN and the poker scene is killing me. We are so fat in this country and now we got our major sports network airing lazy arse men laying around platin poker. Nothing against poker but its ashame they cant market cycling or tri's. I would much rather watch tape delayed cycling TIVoed at 4am in the morning instead of Jay Mohr playing poker, and still holding to Jerry McGuire.

I saw a mention above about cycling.tv ?
