Just watched Ali Jet take the opener in that Italian season, under cloudlees (but cold) skies. Finally, I can see a light at the end of a 4 month tunnel of darkness. Smile

Contador and Pereiro to Comunitat Valencia

Organizers presented the 66th Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana on Friday with a poster of Alberto Contador (Astana) and Oscar Pereiro (Caisse d'Epargne) and Luis Leon Sanchez (Caisse d'Epargne).

The relatively flat five-day Spanish race will be disputed between February 26 and March 1 and is expected to draw a noteworthy roster of sprinters including Daniele Bennati (Lampre), Alessandro Petacchi and Erik Zabel (Team Milram) and locals Ruben Plaza and Javier Benitez (Lisboa e Benficra).

Which can be seen, hopefully, on here, with a link provided by www.cycligfans.com
I wonder how much of the season Contador will see, if OP's investigation into the Fuentes blood doping ring re-opens, with him in their sights?

Blood doping? Now, there's a question I want to ask Cape, about the cost of this illicit practice. I wonder which thread I should pose my question on? Rolling Eyes

I don't think he will be doing that in future what with his health and age making Travel Insurance Prohibitive even for Eurosport.
I should know as mine is expensive with very high excesses and although I have a "Stent", the rest is non life threatening. Duffers is a lot older and some of his problems are life threatening.
British Euro will have him in the studio perhaps.

Bravo to Steve Cummings (Reggio-Calabria)!  Thought he'd blown it when his first attack at 4km out was caught, but he was the strongest sprinter in the end.  That has cheered me up a bit.

I'm considering subscribing to cycling.tv, and was wondering if those who already have it could help me out by answering a few questions....

1. It appears that a lot of races (Giro, Paris-Nice, Paris-Roubaix, etc) are only available to North American subscribers (ie: not me). I guess cycling.tv couldn't afford the European broadcast rights. In these cases, do they generally have high-lights packages or delayed broadcast for those that can't access the live broadcast, or will I see nothing at all of these events?

2. For the Tour of California, they are advertising "as-live" broadcasts. Once you subscribe, are these available to access at any time, and for all content that they broadcast, or only for specific events?

3. Can you download video files to play-back locally at a later time? This would avoid the quality-of-service issues I get with streaming broadcasts...

4. What are your general impressions? I appreciate internet-based TV is never going to be perfect, but did you get to see the races you wanted, when you wanted?

I imagine that means you can watch them on Eurosport, if you have Sky.

Or you can pop down to your local and watch it on their TV. Cool

What if Jugernaut follows the advice of the local:

*Juggeranut arrives at local*

Juggernaut to barman: hi mr barman, would you mind turning that from the horse racing to some great cycle racing

barman: sorry mister, i think it best you go home. you've had enough alcohol
juggernaut: but i just got here
barman: that's no problem of mine. please just leave and don't cause any more trouble

Nolte - that's amazingly accurate. I live in a small town in Scotland, so you've missed the bit where I get chibbed with a broken bottle, and it would be football instead of horse racing on the telly, but otherwise spot on.

I don't think I've ever seen cycling on a pub tv in Britain. Ever. Ok, so I wasn't here when the TDF was in London, so maybe that got screen-time, but I think Nolte's point is valid. It's football or nothing (ok, maybe horse racing).

I was in Bourg St-Maurice last summer, resting between Cols. Dropped into a wee cafe expecting to see that day's TDF stage (I think it was the first or second day, when the Tour was still in the UK), but instead they were showing Wimbeldon. I asked if they could change to the cycling, but was told that some English gentlemen had asked to watch the tennis. The French showing Wimbeldon instead of the TDF??? I was speechless...

Jackov - I think you're right, in that the stuff that Cycling.tv isn't broadcasting in Europe will be on Eurosport, but I really don't want to get sky. I have no interest in watching TV aside from cycling, don't want to bolt a big dish on the side of my house, don't want another decoder, etc. If cycling.tv can deliver the goods then it will be perfect...

Not that anybody's interested. Just watched the Giro Grosseto. A real quality field, even some of the French (yes, Cofidis) PT teams turned out. Rabo, Lotto etc.
Di Luca and Savoldelli, Popovych, Rebellin, Garzelli and............Ivan Quaranta, Nolte! Embarassed
Stage was won with ease, by Filippo Pozatto.

A nasty crash towards the finish, but nice to see a motor-cycle brought down by a cyclist, for a change!

if quaranta can't win with the amore e vite team this year, then that is evidence of roman catholicism is wrong (ok, maybe not conclusive proof)

Race Info



2008 sees only the third edition Amgen Tour of California, but the race has rapidly become American cycling’s most prolific event. With a strong line-up, great support and a proven capacity to be an influence on the key discourses of the early season, the race has already found its way into the hearts of cycling fans worldwide. This year’s route promises to be the most interesting ever, and the race also boasts the strongest field in its history, ensuring that the competition will be fierce between the European teams and their American counterparts. As both a celebration of cycling and a gauge of how the big names will progress through the early season, California can’t be beaten.

I did watch it as well! Nice to see Pippo on good early season form. AG2R were there for the French as well as Cofidis.  I think it starts on RAI Tre at 4.30CET this afternoon, then switches to RaiSat.

so much for today΄s stage - a protest by the riders about the dangerous finish, and everyone just rolled over the finish line together.

Yes, the peloton can go on strike over an "S" bend, but are happy to let Astana go down the "U" bend! Rolling Eyes  Laughing
I only caught some of it, but I think tomorrow's climb has a 16% section and they climb it 4 times? I may have heard wrong.
Now, I wonder what time it will turn up on RaiSportsSat?
