http://www.universalsports.com has it live online in the US, and also an hour-long recap show on the TV channel every day.

just checked and I guess cycling.tv is doing it in cooperation with universal?
so who is going to win it?

I am amused that the spanish riders all have their other surnames revealed in the start list:

Looks good though, some good names, you have to fancy Andy Schleck assuming he has recovered from the tour.

cadel might be a good thing i reckon. he'd be hurting after the tour flop.

Wet racetrack with lots of corners must absolutely suck. Wonder how much it will dry for the later starters?

What the hell is the small boy they gave fabian cancellara?

King of the mountains toy train is good swag IMO.

Third place for Roger Hammond today. Can I mention that I raced against Roger Hammond twenty years ago again? Please?

h8 chris horner

is that a bike he's riding or a fucking gate

cozen, Monday, 2 September 2013 19:54 (six years ago) link

is horner drugs?

cozen, Monday, 2 September 2013 20:00 (six years ago) link

Don't think so. It was an eyebrow-raising performance today but even the witch finder generals of The Clinic don't seem to have any dirt on him.

you may not like it now but you will (Zora), Monday, 2 September 2013 20:30 (six years ago) link

amazing finish today

myonga vön bantee (cozen), Monday, 9 September 2013 15:30 (six years ago) link

oh come off it

cozymandias (cozen), Thursday, 12 September 2013 18:53 (six years ago) link

don't know if you guys ever see clinic or dark side or not safe for cycling fans and other shitty boards, but watching froom fanboys and others lose their shit over this is like comfort food for my hidden inner troll.

boom lol excelsior (Hunt3r), Thursday, 12 September 2013 21:59 (six years ago) link

best tour of the year

cozymandias (cozen), Friday, 13 September 2013 20:57 (six years ago) link

Is that before or after he sprayed the podium champagne into his eye?
