If you’re not ready to put the bike racing down after the Tour de France team time trial Sunday afternoon, keep the television on for Versus recap of the Nature Valley Grand Prix. The 13th annual National Racing Calendar event will air Sunday July 3 at 2:00 p.m. EDT.

“Even for fans who attended the races in person or followed the live streams on the internet, this program is a chance to put all of the pieces together,” Nature Valley Grand Prix Executive Director David LaPorte said. “For everyone else, this is an opportunity for them to see some of the best professional cycling in the United States showcased in a half-hour broadcast.”

The five-day stage race in Minnesota and Wisconsin featured the top riders in the domestic peloton, including overall winners Jesse Anthony (Kelly Benefit Strategies-OptumHealth) and former world time trial champion Amber Neben (HTC-Highroad). Versus camera crews were on the ground and in the peloton for the six-stage event and the television recap will provide an inside look into U.S. racing.
