I thought there already was a thread on this but couldn't find it.

Favorites: Freire, Gilbert, Kroon, Kirchen, Gerrans, Voeckler, Leukemans...

Ben Hermans is sick and didn't start. Lequattre and Baggio also didn't start.


Van de Walle, Rosseler, Eeckhout, Peruffo, de Gendt and Gottfried with 8m40 on the peloton.

Sporza broadcast starts at 15:20 CET.

I may manage to watch THREE races today, if some streams come up for this and Castilla y Leon. I think that would be a new personal best.
 
Gilbert for Lotto's first this year? Been up there in a number of classics over the last four weeks, but hasn't been able to finish the job. Building some confidence going into Amstel, Fleche and Liege certainly wouldn't hurt.

Is the RTBF stream geo-restricted? I just get a 50 minute countdown when I try to access it, which I assume is due to me being in a different time-zone.

Yes, I believe that normally RTBF is geo-restricted. I have to watch it here in Belgium because it's the francophone channel and I don't understand more than a few words of Flemish, such as "Wat is dat?", "Oy oy oy" and "Photo finish" :D

No, it's not Geo restricted. I'm where you are.
You need to set your PC clock on an hour to CET and you'll get the feed.;)
60kms to go........

If the front three survive - Van De Walle, Rosseler, and De Gendt - I'd like De Gendt to win. Doubt they can hold the six plus minutes though.

So what's going on here... 4 men ahead with 5:30 to the peloton... No one interested in chasing? Just tuned in...

It's just three - Van De Walle, Rosseler and De Gendt. Vacansoleil have been doing much of the chasing of late. Gap is coming down at a quicker pace now, or so it seems. Sub 5 minute lead with 38k to go.
