Super powerful satellite dish that uses 1.21 gigawatts. ;D

Besides the mountain biking, be sure to check out the BMX event in the Olympics.  This is its first time in the Olympics and the course is sick:

This is what Google pulled up. Strangely enough, neither BMX or Mountain Biking at listed on NBC's website:

August 22nd:
MSNBC, 5 a.m.-5 p.m. Men's Soccer Bronze Medal Match (LIVE); Baseball Semifinal; Men's Volleyball Semifinal; Women's Field Hockey Bronze Medal Game; Women's Modern Pentathlon; Women's Mountain Bike; Men's Handball Semifinal

August 23rd (though NBC's schedule shows the 24th):
NBC and NBC HD, 12:30-5 a.m. Men's Basketball Gold Medal Game (LIVE); Men's Mountain Bike; Men's Table Tennis - Gold Medal Match

Check the video on demand site a NBC.  NBC also owns MSNBC and USA that may also show some additional coverage.

You can watch all the sports online. www.nbcolympics.com I believe is the site. They have archived feeds too if you can't watch the event(s) live.

It looks like we'll see the BMX coverage on the NBC broadcast, but will most likely only get highlights of the XC event (which is fine, because watching XC racing is about as fun as watching paint dry).

Do you guys actually see the listing for it on the left hand side of the NBC site? Maybe they'll throw it under "Cycling" when the events get closer.
