No live Vuelta on ITV4 or Eurosport today

by Simon_MacMichael   September 4, 2011  

Possibly the decisive stage of the 2011 Vuelta, British riders lie 1st and 2nd on GC, and it won't be shown live on either ITV4 or British Eurosport.

Since you ask, this afternoon ITV4 has seven hours' worth of British Touring Car Championships, while Eurosport has US Open tennis on one channel and Moto GP on the other.

I'm assuming there won't be any online coverage from Eurosport, but Ned Boulting has tweeted to say that the ITV4 player WILL be showing a live stream, without adverts,starts at 1445, link here: http://www.itv.com/lavuelta/2011/live/.

He added that the channel has a longstanding contract with Touring Cars, which adjusts its calendar so it doesn't conflict with ITV4's TDF coverage.

Frustrating, but hopefully you can get near a computer.

Fortunately I'm at work from 2pm so would miss it anyway.

Got the computer at work but i dont think my boss would be happy me sitting watching the cycling.

Will have to make do with the highlights and occasional checks on the coverage supplied by Team Sky's website.

If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it. Gaius Julius Caesar.

No coverage at all of Tour of Britain either that I can see Sad

Maybe a Fantasy 2012 Olympic Games as it doesn't look up to much so far At Wits End

I'm always in two minds
Then I go and pick the wrong one Sad
