Tour of Missouri: TV coverage

UPDATED: In case you can't make it to the Show-Me State for this year's Tour of Missouri, you should be able to watch some video of the action.

Versus is planning coverage for each stage of the race. The cable network plans half-hour segments at midnight CDT following each stage. Expect to hear a familiar voice behind the microphone. Legendary cycling commentator Paul Sherwen has confirmed on his Twitter page that he will be on site during the race, and Frankie Andreu will join him

Universal Sports will have streaming video available from the Tour of Missouri. Throughout the week, streaming video also will be available at the Tour of Missouri site, KMOV.com and KMBC.com. Here are the times listed for coverage:
  • Stage 1, Monday, Sept. 7: 3:30 p.m. CDT
  • Stage 2, Tuesday, Sept. 8: 2 p.m. CDT
  • Stage 3, Wednesday, Sept. 9: 2 p.m. CDT
  • Stage 4, Thursday, Sept. 10: 4:30 p.m. CDT
  • Stage 5, Friday, Sept. 11: 3 p.m. CDT
  • Stage 6, Saturday, Sept. 12: 3:30 p.m. CDT
  • Stage 7, Sunday, Sept. 13: 3:30 p.m. CDT
KMOV-TV in St. Louis will air Stage 1 of the Tour of Missouri on one of its digital channels. KMOV's coverage is scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m. CDT Monday and will be aired on Digital Channel 4.2 (Channel 154 on Charter Cable in the St. Louis area). KMBC-TV in Kansas City plans to cover Stage 7 live from 2-5 p.m. CDT on Sept. 13.

Fox Sports Midwest and Fox Sports Kansas City will air the Sherwen-Andreu highlight show. Some of the times are approximate because of broadcasts of St. Louis Cardinals (FSM) and Kansas City Royals (FSKC) baseball games and post-game shows or of college football games. Here's the schedule:
  • Stage 1, Monday, Sept. 7: 10:30 p.m. CDT (FSM and FSKC)
  • Stage 2, Tuesday, Sept. 8: About 11 p.m. CDT (FSM). About 10:30 p.m (FSKC)
  • Stage 3, Wednesday, Sept. 9: 10:30 CDT (FSM). About 10:30 p.m. (FSKC)
  • Stage 4, Thursday, Sept. 10: 11:30 p.m. CDT (FSM and FSKC)
  • Stage 5, Friday, Sept. 11: About 11 p.m. CDT (FSM). 11:30 CDT (FSKC)
  • Stage 6, Saturday, Sept. 12: 12:45 a.m. CDT Sunday (FSM and FSKC)
  • Stage 7, Sunday, Sept. 13: 11:30 p.m. CDT (FSM and FSKC)
Cycling TV's schedule makes no mention of the Tour of Missouri.

I'll update this post when I hear of more opportunities to see the race.
