sign up as a member, and you get to torrent cycling races. It is one of the few "legal" torrent sites as it just takes things off the TV, which is not as bad.

You can always find the stage by versus, eurosport, & sbs so pick your commentator!
BTW this was site not found....

Before you go any further you should read the cyclingtorrents.nl user agreement.

clicking user agreement = Server not found

Check out Brian's BitTorrent FAQ and Guide.
clicking = blank page

It shouldn't be the difficult!!!!

There is no additional charge for this service and a customerís subscription will not be affected. As always, anyone who visits our website can enjoy video highlights, photos and breaking news for free without authentication.

So I have to figure out How I will get to see the Vuelta...and will no longer have access to the Giro replays. Meanwhile they credited my CC for $2.40 of the $42.50 I paid them.
I got this too..I was very disappointed! We're not into television and just have the barebones uverse basic TV. I've used Universal for the Vuelta and Giro last year and the Giro this year. I was looking forward to watching the Vuelta this year too.

I use cyclingtorrents-great site!

I'm going to try some of the live feed links on this site:

http://www.steephill.tv/vuelta-a-espana/

Sometimes I can get a good Eurosport live feed, which is how I saw part of the TDF.

Eurosport is good for the tour....gazetta.it is excellent Giro coverage ..
Spring classics cant be beat on sporza..

The downside is if you can't watch live there is no full replay.

Yes, universal sucks
