I think there was live stream last year. I'm pretty sure that I watched live some portuguese race and it had to be this.

There is no TV coverage this year due to lack of money. Only brief short stories after the stages.

Seven riders from Angola dropped already, as per @michielelijzen. The 8th one will pull the sprint for himself, he adds.

If it's the same finish as last year it's uphill no?

Last year's top 10 -

1 Gianni Meersman (BEL) Lotto-Belisol 4h 02' 17"
2 Greg Van Avermaet (BEL) BMC Racing Team s.t.
3 Matti Breschel (DEN) Rabobank s.t.
4 Björn Leukemans (BEL) Vacansoleil-DCM s.t.
5 Nicolas Roche (IRL) Ag2r-La Mondiale s.t.
6 Anthony Ravard (FRA) Ag2r-La Mondiale s.t.
7 Rui Costa (POR) Movistar Team s.t.
8 Michael Van Staeyen (BEL) Topsport Vlaanderen-Mercator s.t.
9 Edvald Boasson Hagen (NOR) Team Sky s.t.
10 Jan Bakelants (BEL) RadioShack-Nissan s.t

If it's the stage Meersman won last year, then it makes perfect sense. Martens isn't exactly a pure spinter as well.
