Considering most races have a degree of 'tourist attraction' interest - a trundle through pan flat industrial Rotterdam, through avenues not lined by stunning architecture and screaming 'tifosi' but by stacked containers, doesn't have me rushing there but it was enjoyable enough last season and a rare stage win for Boonen, helped by it being over two days.

No ES coverage of Omloop?

Afraid not the next live race is Kuurne Brussel Kuurne on tommorow at 2.15pm CET
Peter Sagan:
"I under-evaluated him (Gerald Ciolek) a little bit. I was watching Cancellara, who was trying to break free, and maybe I did too much work," Sagan said. "Ciolek stayed in the wheels and he took my wheel to do the sprint and was able to beat me. I went too early in the sprint."


17/03/13 Milan - San Remo

Peter Sagan:
“We went away in a break on the Oude Kwaremont, but then Cancellara went for it on the Paterberg and I wasn’t able to follow him,”


31/03/13 Tour of Flanders

cycling.tv have it as well and while they are a bit pricey for what you get in terms of live coverage (at least for a UK subscriber), there are the archives as well. And the commentary is in English (which I prefer).

If I remember correctly Strade Bianci was live on ES last year, but i do not see it on this years schedule. Will it be somewhere besides dodgy streams?

I think it's the unspecified live cycling at 14.30 next sunday, the Paris-Nice prologue is on at 16.00 going by this http://tv.eurosport.co.uk/tvschedule.shtml

There's also supposed to be live cycling on saturday afternoon - is that Roma Maxima? I can't see anything else on. The tv guide just says (helpfully!) 'action from a cycling event'.

Strade Bianche is Saturday, Roma Maxima is Sunday.

Don't know if it's old or new news, but I would have bought a ****ing pitchfork, if the decision had been different. ;)

Who was the chap commentating with Brian Smith at the weekend.

He is almost as annoying in his pronunciation of teams and riders as that guy Mike Smith they used to have back at the studio in Paris.

Astannnnnnnnnnnnnnnaaaaaaaaaaaa
A-she deuz air
Moosair

Now what was all that about. Is he a narrator of romantic novels or something?

Good moaning! Bon Jouree Rodney!

it's not old news.only thursday or so they signed the agreement
and the good news don't stop here
rcs races will have a lot more time on eurosport:
THREE HOURS for every giro d'italia stage...
and at least two hours for other races, tirreno, san remo, lombardia etc

eurosport,the home of cycling.



i hope though that in the future there will be mountain giro stages broadcast from start to finish like in le tour.

It's Rob Hatch, to be fair I like his consistent attempt to use the correct pronunciations, for example AG2R *is* "aah-jeh-deux-errr" rather than the anglified "eeh-gee-two-aar" used by Kirby and Harmon (or Hendon as they seem to be calling him this season?!).

Just a shame so few of them are live though at this point and Saturday's coverage of Strade Bianche was a mess, due to be on delayed for a 90 min broadcast but instead they came on 40 mins earlier than advertised and showed the last 40km live, but I'm sure I wasn't the only one to turn on at the advertised time only to see the last 20km. The highlights show then proceeded to show 40-35km then (I think) an edited version of the last 20 km again.

Because of the clash with Paris-Nice, only 4 out of the 7 Tirreno stages will be live. But as you say, there will be 2hrs of them.

As I said, 4 live, 3 not. There is live biathlon on and that means no live tirreno on those days. Paris-Nice is the one Eurosport are putting top priority so it stays live, tirreno goes delayed on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

Paris-Nice

Tuesday 5th March: Paris-Nice Stage 2 LIVE 1345 Eurosport 1
