The 2009 Vuelta a Espania is on Universal

Much like the Giro d'Italia this year, the third Grand Tour of the season can be found at Universal Sports, a subsidiary of NBC. I'll probably be catching it online, as they don't seem to be giving it a lot of TV time. Versus does a great job with the Tour and I love how thourough they are. But, it's also great to see some others getting interested. And with a company as seemingly well capitalized as NBC and their parent company GE vying for cycling broadcasting rights, you have to wonder how much Versus is paying for their contract and how long they'll be able to maintain their exclusivity.

Universal's hom page for the Vuelta can be found at:

Of course, there is always VeloNews' live text coverage which I also enjoy. This is a great option for those who sit at a computer all day at work and can't look like they're just watching videos... Go here:

Enjoy the race!
