Anyone know why Eurosport's audio feed isn't the Vuelta?

    No TV pictures because of the weather.

    Really, where? Eurosport showed an hour of the finish line camera then gave up and showed something else. TVE is showing a looped clip of some action from earlier today.

    OK, they just stopped showing it on the spanish channel and now they're showing commentators only.

    Wow, they need ASO's help big time!

    It's too bad, I was really excited to see how they handled the unique finish today. It was a really cool and unique idea they thought up to hit a cat 1 climb and have them circuit it twice before finishing the race by climbing even higher after the circuit.

    I doubt ASO could have done any better. It's just bad luck... you don't really expect weather that bad in the first week of September.

    If you can't get a helicopter up, there's not a lot you can do.

    Hey, I think the video just came back. That looked like Ballan winning but it was hard to tell in the fog.

    I don't know. The giro had video back when Hampsten won in the snow.

    Hah, cyclingnews live updates just went from 13km to a Ballan win in 1 minute flat :lol: I know the guy is fast, but that's ridiculous.
