For the Giro i think that the reason is that the contract for tv production and italian distribution is still missing, due to some discussion about tv rights prices and hd production between RCS and RAI. But at the end they will surely find an agreement, so i think that we should not worry

Thanks Hi Cadence for posting that.

There won't be any Tour of Hangzhou, I think!

No Langkawi grrrrr, the most epic race outside Europe.

Indeed Wirral that's why i'm viewing this as a 'What we could possibly have' instead of 'What we are getting this year' :P

Seems like the likely scenario

Correct, exclusive to ITV4 in UK. I'd far rather have listened to Harmon than blooming Porter last year!

This Eurosport TV guide was produced a while back (at least a month ago as it was discussed mid january in the Eurosport commentators thread when someone posted scans of it that also appeared on Twitter) and when it was made, there was no Algarve deal in place. All the Italian race coverage had also yet to be finalised.

Haut Var has been added in the time since, perhaps to replace the loss of Qatar.
