Eurosport's live road coverage to start with Dubai Tour on Feb 3rd.
They also plan live coverage of the resurrected Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana on the same dates..............if they race goes ahead with live coverage.
All I can say is, when it was last held, it did have live coverage of sorts.
Good news for folks with satellite, since Eurosport have never got their hands on the tv rights.
The Bike Channel ( which is free to air in UK) confirms they are showing the Het Nieuwsblad live on Saturday in both Italy and the UK.
Worth looking at their list of coverage, because it fills in some of the Eurosport gaps:-
Omloop het nieusblad
Dwars door Vlaanderen
Milano – Sanremo
Tour of Turkey
Tour of Yorkshire
De Brabantse Pijl - La Flèche Brabançonne
Tour of California
Tour of Poland
Vuelta a Burgos
Tour des Fjords
Brussel Cycling Classic
Tour of Utah
Just an early heads up for two forthcoming Bike Channel UK exclusives.
Wednesday they have live coverage of the Dwars door Vlaanderen, which, by my reckoning is the first time it has been shown live here.
Coverage starts at 1-15pm GMT, until 4pm, so a sizable chunk.
Gent Wevelgem got a last minute showing on UK Eurosport last year, after several years absence.
Looks unlikely this year, with both Catalunya and the Crit International scheduled.
Bike Channel's live coverage again starts at 1-15pm, until 3-30pm.
The Giro del Trentino Melinda will be covered live on TV. The race will be aired live for 1.30 hour a day on Italian Raisport and eight more broadcasters (Eleven Sports, Bike Channel UK, TV2, Fox Sports, L’Equipe 21, ESPN, Laola and EBU) that will bring the Giro del Trentino Melinda action all over the World."

you wouldn't have noticed if you watch on a crippled-for-commercial-reasons-skybox but recently skycorp's bike channel put itself on the freesat epg to cash in on letour. my tellybox now has a weeks worth of epg, rather than just now/next. so i'm remembering to see the above races, and can watch it in the other room on the nap-sofa without messing around in the clunky submenus on the humaxbox. the important burgos stage with the pretty lagunas helichopper flyabout seems to clash with something else…
matt's rambles are soporific, until he answers his phone in spanish.
Today, Eurosport showed Live Binche-Chimay-Binche
Uphill "Pave" led it into the town and the last 500 it ceased as the many attacks took place .
Démare came flying past three riders battling it out and won from Stybar and Roelandts
