Fox sports has coverage in the US. Took me a while to find it and set the DVR. Fox Sports (2 I think) is showing it live, some of the local sports networks are showing it in reruns later in the evening.

Also nice to see that they are getting 5 WT teams to come this year.

In tour of California he was going very good, only beaten by the magical Egan Bernal, but there in no Sky in this race. Could be his race.

Jack Haig will be disappointed if he doesn't finish top 2, especially seeing there is only short prologue. MS gave him two leadership opportunities earlier this year for him to blow up one stage and lose a top 10.

It seems the Tour Tracker will be region locked again, just like with Tour of California.

Honestly I thought the differences would not be as big, but some of them riding fro the GC already lost 20 sec to TJ, for example Rob Britton the defending champion. But to be honest in the high mountains that advantage is next to none.

Tomorrow's stage should already tell us what TJ is up to:

First climb is 23km @ 6%, second one is 16km @ 2.5%.

Stage 1 should be live on Eurosport in about half an hour, 21:30h CET or 1:30 PM local time.
For those of you who can watch the Tour Tracker I think it's already live:
