    It's also live on cycling.tv with only the 'Premium' subscription - i.e. not the extra 'Vuelta' subscription (strange Australian commentary though).

    http://cyclingfans.com/ has posted start order and times for the TTT today. They say they'll be putting up alternate video streams also.

    With Pedro Delgado (who climb the main "puertos" before the mountains stages, speaking about them)

    dont suppose you know if thats every day do you?i suspect the vuelta coverage on eurosport will be decimated by the US tennis so the hunt for alternatives is on....
  • TVE International on teletwxt should help

    Well it was on Saturday night but I can't get it now with only 'Premium'. It requires 'Silver', 'Gold', or 'Vuelta' subscription.

    they're showing it on Eurosport. Although, does the race get much better? Never really watched the Vuelta before, Giro always looks exciting as does The Tour, but this really doesn't look too exciting. Perhaps it's the terrain and roads, they always look like main roads with loads of crash barriers and hard shoulders etc......

    The route this year is better than 2007 (many stages in the north), anyway always worse than giro or tour (Unipublic don´t dare to include good stages mountains)

    Another way to wacth the Vuelta is www.rtve.es online and for free

    Victor, could you give a direct link for the video at RTVE, I don't understand Spanish.
    Thanks!

    It's right on the top of the home page: "Sigue la tercera etapa de la Vuelta: Jaén - Córdoba " directo = live

    Just remember to tune in 45 minutes late, or else prepare to fall asleep before the finish.
    Note: the above post is an opinion and not fact. It might be a lie.

    Flemish public TV has highlights online (also of the Tour of Germany by the way):

    'wedstrijdverslag' = highlights; 'laatste kilometer' = last kilometer (in fulll)

    I'm now blind too, since I didn't see anything like that there, and I still don't understand Spanish.
    If there is a direct link, can someone post it please.

    Well, it's not there anymore now, as it isn't live now, but I bet it will reappear during the last hours of todays stage. I'll post the direct link if it does, but it might well be a different URL every day.
    By the way, the video opened but didn't actually load for me. I thought it was my slow connection and had work to do, but hear others had the same issue.. perhaps you need to be in Spain to watch it? Or the Bikeradar masses completely overburdened them :wink:
  • That's probably more likely the case!

    You poor fellas at work and cannot watch it live are not missing much as it has been very boring so far, particularly as compared with the Tour of Ireland.
