Tour de France TV Schedule Is Posted

New, 11 comments

Thanks to TdFBlog who noticed this first. Versus has its schedule of daily Tour de France coverage posted on its website. The skinny:

  • Every day they run live from 8:30-11:30am EDT. At least; some days they start earlier, 7:30 for certain big stages, 7am for the Tignes stage, 6:30 for the Col d'Aubisque stage.
  • Just about every day, they rerun a condensed version from 12-2pm, another from 2:30-4:30, and yet another from 5-7pm.
  • Just about every night, they run a three-hour version of the replay from 8-11pm, then repeated again starting at midnight.

According to TdFBlog, that averages out to 17 hours of coverage per day. I know we bitch 'n moan every spring when Versus is doing a hatchet job on the Classics or the Giro... but 17 hours? Respect.
