SBS showed quite a bit last year (and there were a few races on One HD) , but more is always better

they announced on cycling central yesterday that they'll be showing Ronde van Vlaanderen & Paris - Roubaix LIVE :mrgreen:

Not sure who Sky will be riding for, but it looks like the kind of course Mick Rogers could do well on.

Eurosport on foxtel gentlemen. 1hr of Paris-Nice repeated 20times so no excuse for missing it. Oh except if it is like the Tour of the Algarve which got canned :roll: and ruined the scheduling of the Tour of Oman.

No sign of Strade Bianchi though. That wet day on the Giro was unforgettable.

No one tipping a winner yet though? Kreuziger, Schleck, Porte (got to have an Aussie pick)

According to Velonation The three “Corse di Primavera”, consisting of Montepaschi Strade Bianche, Tirreno-Adriatico and Milano-Sanremo, with be live on Eurosport in Europe.

Livestreaming hopefully from RAI for me. That is how I watch the Giro last year, except for the few stages shown live by SBS

Given he has form, I'll tip Rogers.

“When I’m in good condition and there’s a week-long race with a time trial, I know I can win them all. I’d be crazy not to concentrate on that.”

This appears right up his alley. More from that article....

According to the Foxtel guide it's live tonight from around 12:30.

Last night was a great race. The four man breakaway was: De Gendt, Jeremy Roy and Jens Voigt.

Aussie 1-2 in the 3rd satge, and 1st & 3rd overall, and an Aussie in the Points jersey.

So far so good !!!!!

Congrats to Gossy for the stage win & leaders jersey, and HH for 2nd (on stage 3) and 3rd overall and Points jersey.

Good post :) except for the last line :oops: :P

It really has been a fantastic start to the year by Australian riders. Michael Matthews win in the first stage of the Vuelta Ciclista went unmentioned here also.

Hopefully an Aussie can pull off one of the big spring races.

Goss after his win.

http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/ambitio ... paris-nice

Interesting near the end of the article, the part about next weeks Milan-San Remo and Cavendish. "If" Cav is at the front he'll "probably" help him. Maybe I'm reading too much into it but I think he'd be happy to see Cav dropped on the Poggio :mrgreen:
