I want to give credit to the Versus channel for one thing. There coverage of the Tour de France has been terrific. It is as good of a job by any network as you will find. First, with a capable studio host in Craig Hummer, second, a great play-by-play commentator in Phil Liggett, and two respected analysts in Paul Sherwen and Bob Roll. 

They have a nice pre-race show that opens the telecast. They give you three solid hours of coverage of the race and then have a post-race show complete with interviews and commentary. 

Versus has a few webpages dedicated to the Tour are very good complete with information on every race, standings, blogs and video archives. 

Versus struck gold, or should I say yellow, by being able to acquire the Tour de France. By having exclusive rights to the event and with one the world’s best-known athletes, an American named Lance Armstrong as its star, Versus has itself a very important piece of sports television.
