I'd be all over a Sportsnet that broadcast Euro hockey, field hockey, Euro basketball, international track & field, World Rally Car, UCI cyclocross, UCI track racing, Euro pro volleyball, handball, etc. Oh yeah, that would be called Eurosport. And we're not allowed to get that here...Maybe they should have a Sportsnet 2 where its cycling, raslin, beach volleyball, darts, lawn bowling reruns of roller derby....
I remember just last summer, I swear I saw TSN airing a Canada/USA Rugby game in HD from Universal Sports.Its too bad that Sportsnet couldn't get an HD feed. Universal Sports is a great channel, but it doesn't broadcast in HD.
killarney, what is your problem with sports like cycling and beach volleyball? These are Olympic sports that are popular throughout the world. Maybe you aren't a fan of them, but there are lots of fans. I was personally very happy to tune into Sportsnet One and see FIVB beach volleyball the other night. I love the Olympics and its nice to see these sports more often than once every four years.
Awesome! Thanks for posting this Carlost; I hadn't even bothered to check SN1's schedule for the possibility of them broadcasting the TDU given the dearth of web feeds for the race. Let's hope this is a portent for coverage of the Spring Classics, Giro, etc!Nice to see Sportsnet One showing extended highlights everyday of the Tour Down Under.

You mean his stomach is no longer full of anger?Contador, I'm sure that inwardly Andy is smiling just a little, after the chain incident.
This is how I feel with golf watching tournaments in the UAE and Qatar the past couple weekends after the tournament in Hawaii at the start of the season. It just makes me wish there wasn't so much snow on the ground.Watching the Tour of Qatar is just... weird. No real culture of cycling in this desert, oil-rich country... But it's February, I haven't had much opportunity to ride myself
