By live coverage of the Vuelta, do you mean live commentary in writing? It doesn't look like there's live vide of the Vuelta. :confused:

I read you were dutch. Ik denk dat het slim is om deze mensen gratis live coverage aan te bieden. Veel amerikanen klagen dat ze geen enkele race kunnen zien, afgezien van de tour dan maar dat is logisch!

Je kan er zelfs geld voor vragen.....:D

You could ask for money? How? As I can see only thing you do is that you paste the Polish web page with live streaming on your page and promoting here that you will have a live video streaming! Shame on you..

Here is the original link.

We don`t want to ask money for it, like we said! But we could, we could buy the rights, make an english commentary on it and ask money for it! And to be exact. At the end of this week, i will be in Poland and than we will talk with people of i-TVP & Lang (Poland tour organizers) and than we will try to get the the rights for next year and than with English comments and still for free! it will be financed with advertising.

Where does that half the field live then?
The storms in Spain stopped the Spainish teams flying out... and the Kazah's riders including Vino could not get VISA's Poland thus not riding.... T-Mobile and others have cut down teams..... what a fark up this Pro-Tour is becoming.....

It`s not the first time Vino has problems with Visas. That`s not the ProT problem..

Problem because they raise the status of a shitty event in Poland to ProTour status ala the Enco Tour.... the race has not had enough years of grounding into the calendar to warrant ProTour status..... the race organisers should have arranged via the consulate to ensure all visas would be fast tracked..... I've spent much time in
Poland and obtaining visas sometimes is very hard work..... the race is a celebration of the country thus they shouldn’t make it so hard……… Its like running a ProTour event in the former soviet socialist republic of Moldova.......!! now Slovenia is a different country... we can all travel freely..... :D

Although it`s a pitty that Vinokourov and the Credit Agricole riders from Kazachstan didn`t get their visa (no not a pitty - it`s a scandal!) the field is still very strong: Di Luca, Popovych, Julich, Boogerd, Voigt and a lot more great riders are riding the Tour of Poland.
