Tour de France, Giro d'Italia, Vuelta a España, Tour Down Under and more
The bigger races will have their own threads, but maybe one for the smaller races??
Feels like the season has really started now with Omloop Het Nieuwsblad having been run and won overnight....

Big Tom must have been licking his chops at the prospect of a three up sprint, nice job by Vanmarcke
Haussler might finally be moving towards the form of 2009.
The way he rode off Hayman and Van Avermart (sp) was amazing. The images of Fletcher trying to hang on are pretty amazing. I have always wanted to be that good, that you can drop people on the flats. Given the number of attacks he made, a totally deserving winner. Kurne up tonight.
On Cav. This is not meant too seriously. Other riders should focus on winning the race, not getting Cav’s wheel. If they don’t get it game over. That means Cav has pretty much already won.
Kurne, apparently feeling rubbish and still wins. Andre and Renshaw complain about other riders.
Agree totally. Was disappointing to hear Renshaw say when he lost the wheel he gave up. Everyone knows he has an awesome kick why would you want to be on his wheel when you are already 1 bike length behind, I dont believe Renshaw will get around him from his wheel he has to find other ways to win.
While it wasn't happening for Renshaw, it was happening for his Australian team mate Michael Matthews

A review of the weekends racing addresses in part what you're talking about (point 2)....

It's early days but there'd be a fair bit of pressure on Goss. I hope he responds.
Strade Bianche on 4/3
Paris-Nice from 4/3
Tirreno-Adriatico from 7/3
Milano-Sanremo on 17/3
it's an extravaganza and we havent even got to the classics yet!
for those with Foxtel, all these will be on Eurosport
This is the first season I've had Eurosport - I'm dreading it. Not only do I have zombie month when le tour is on, now I have zombie autumn when all the other stuff is on as well.
...but Paris-Nice, I won't be able to not watch it!
So we get the leaders we deserve and we elect, we get the companies and the products that we ask for, right? And we have to ask for different things. – Paul Gilding
but really, that's rubbish. We get none of it because the choices are illusory.
I usually finish work at 1am (11am if it's an early finish), so TDF and now the whole cycling season is on at the perfect time. I can see the record me button getting an extensive workout, and I'm going to memorise the eurosport channel number to program in to the tv's at work.
foxtel iq is brilliant - i just looged onto the foxtel website, did a keyword search on "cycling" and set everything to record in the next fortnight
i record everything and watch it when i get home from work. During Le Tour you have to avoid all forms of media and put your colleagues on notice not to give the results away. Other races are find though.
Don't forget to set the extra 30min record time for each programme, otherwise your classics season will be filled with Woman's Tennis
yep i've learnt my lesson on that one already. eurosport seem to have suggested time slots...must be italian
ch9 are worse though...the 1st 20 mins of "top gear" is bloody two and a half men
I need a way to get Eurosport. I dont want a satellite package with all the other crap, just Eurosports.
Strade Bianche tonight on Cycling Central. Yeehhaaa
He does it in the way we all dream we could do it

Yep, it really was awesome.
Paris-Nice tonight and for the next while.

Check out steephill and cyclingfans, there are always links (to the usual places) to get Eurosport feeds.
So is there any way to get Eurosport without Foxtel's packages that I don't want ?
Never mind, think I worked it out from Foxtel site. Seems like I can get it for $45/month + $100 install. Bit steep for this black duck.
Have I got it right ?
JB is gunna need a bigger whip!
Edit - I read the TT's have been increased in length as well. There goes another minute. Does Andy know where Italy and Spain are?
