Go onto http://www.twitter.com/search and then type in #roadnats

Also, nothing has changed other than a minor attack by Durbridge which has been brought back in by the original break. Gap out to 2mins at the halfway mark.
Thanks guys, don't generally think of twitter (something to do with my age I guess!)

Overall the media coverage of this race is shocking, SBS tracker only updating every 1/2 hour. Appreciate any updates from anyone who is there.
Presumably the Nine Network and Fox offered the organisers more than SBS did. Even then, Nine put it on one of their second string channels. Fox of course you have to pay at rates that border on extortion. If you cant watch either (and being outside of OZ, that includes me), its tough luck.

To their credit, SBS may have had a live stream (Geo-restricted though) if they had the rights, but they don't.

Also, if you're in South Australia, the TDU preview is on 9 at the same time as the highlights on GEM.

Yep, and I think it is a bit silly that people on social media are complaining about Nine's coverage when they have shown much more of the championships so far than SBS and are showing the same amount of live coverage of the Men's RR as SBS did.

OK, so it's the first year in several that I haven't been there, so guess I'm spoiled.
 
When Live Coverage starts on TV, one of you who can see it will have to post regular updates for us all (please!!!).

Who knows, if you do well, CN might even offer you a (n unpaid) job in their outdated Blimp at other events.

Split of 20 going away with Porte and Evans in the group. NOt many OGE riders present
Don't know where you're sitting, on TV it looks like Will Clarke dangling out in front of a peloton of about 40.
