It's on NBC Sports channel now 8:23 pm est 6/21. Here is a link to the shows page with link to future air times. Great footage just showed the 1934 tour in color. http://affiliate.zap2it.com/tv/100-years-of-the-tour-de-france/EP01747140

caught the last 45 minutes last night; fantastic honest look at the Tour. It's on next Wednesday as well; have my DVR set to catch the whole thing. The only thing i take issue with is they're somehow holding voelker up as the clean guy; i'm not so sure about that.

Entheo, I had to giggle with that, as well. The whole montage at the end, featuring Voekler, as if he is the hero of the new, clean day had me shaking my head.

That was widely reported back in'98. Some speculation that was also why Pantani dyed his goatee yellow, as well.
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!
