Where are you watching the Tour? If you can’t afford a ticket to France, catch live race coverage on Versus TV and watch recaps online at VeloCenter— this year’s new amped-up Tour coverage from VeloNews.com. Jason Sumner is the Gen-X version of Phil Liggett (the Tour’s most famous long-time commentator). Sumner even looks like a younger version of Liggett minus the British accent. Sumner’s sidekick is Ron Kiefel, who raced in the Tour for 7-Eleven back in the 80s. Kiefel is as round as Bob Roll but lacks the vocal character. Neal Rogers reports from the field with Andy Hood, who is more comfortable reporting with computer than a microphone. But they’re just warming up, so I’d give ’em a few more stages and their race coverage could be even better than Versus. Look out Craig Hummer!
