The Cyclism comes to Canada 

OLN Canada has long been a morass of bull riding and trout fishing (fine things, I'm sure, but not of much interest to me), plus three weeks of Tour de France coverage. For cyclists, the galling thing was that the US version of this channel has had much more cycling coverage than that. In past years they have done Tour-grade shows for both the Vuelta Espana and the Giro Italia, plus a great number of the major one-day races.

This year OLN Canada has decided to add a bunch of cycling to its schedule, hoorah! Sunday evenings are now targeted for cycling coverage. Here's the schedule (listed times EST?):

Paris Nice Classic (Part 2) - March 13th @ 7:30pm
San Remo / Tirreno-Adriatico Classic - March 20th @ 7:30pm
Criterium International Classic - March 27th @ 7:30pm
Tour of Flanders Classic - April 3 @ 7:00pm ... repeating at midnight
Paris Robaix/Redlands Classics - April 10th @ 5pm ....repeating at midnight
Amstel Gold Classic - April 17th @ 7:30pm...repeating at midnight
Bastogne Liege/ Sea Otter Classics - April 24th @ 7:30pm ...repeating at
midnight
Tour of Georgia Classic - May 1st @ 7:30pm ...repeating at midnight
Giro D'Italia (Day 1) - May 8th @ 7pm...repeating at midnight
Giro D'Italia (Day 2) - May 15th @ 7pm...repeating at 1am
Giro D'Italia (Day 3) - May 22 @ 7pm...repeating at midnight
Giro D'Italia (Day 4) - May 29th @ 7pm...repeating at midnight

They already had part one of the Paris-Nice last weekend, and I saw a bit of it, but it didn't appear on my StarChoice programming guide. Same seems to be true of Sunday night's programming, so if your TV guide doesn't show it, take heart and tune in anyways.

Share & Enjoy.
