It doesn't get the TV coverage here that the TdF does, but the Giro is in many ways a more interesting race...for one thing, being early in the season, the alpine weather can be really unpredictable (like when American Andy Hampsten won the stage over the Passo Gavia in a full-on blizzard).  And as nice as the French scenery is, Italy is just so damned awesome.  Not sure what the schedule is this year, but OLN/Versus used to run a few hours of condensed coverage each Sunday.  Maybe NBC will do the same this year.
