since I saw the KPIX chopper going out to the race start today I looked on the KPIX web page. Under their sports section they have some raw video from their chopper. This coverage is better than what you see on VS since they stay with the shot for a long time with no Ads. About the only complaint is they are far enough away it is hard to ID individual riders. The only audio is the Chopper pilot radio. f lots of people watch the videos of today's stage maybe the TV station will get the idea there is a demand for cycling coverage. THe link where you can find the videos is http://cbs5.com/sports  not sure how long the videos will stay on this page before being moved to an archives page.
