If I recall correctly, and if it will be the same as last year, I think that the local Pacific Daylight Time start of the coverage will be at 6:30 AM with the Pre-Race Show and then actual race coverage starting at 6:30 AM--that's 9:30 AM Eastern US time. Then they repeat stuff during the morning, afternoon and evening. Thats got to be better than most professional sports! I will be up at the earliest show time. (At least on Saturday, we'll see how it goes for the rest of the race.)
Be sure to notice the time zone listed.
