Well here in the U.S., OLN was the only station I knew of that would have bicycle races, but after Lance Armstrong retired they stopped covering races like the Vuelta a Espana. They also fired Phil Ligget because he didn't mention or make a reference to Lance Armstrong three times within a minute with no more than 40 seconds going by without in the 2005 Tour de France (This was when David Zabriskie crashed in the Team Time Trial in Stage 4). However, there is a site that has live streaming coverage of the Vuelta and other races called ( And to your amazement, Phil Ligget and Paul Sherwan commentate on there for most road races. Even though it may not be as big as your TV, the quality is very good if you have a DSL/Cable connection like I do.
