    European races on short wave?

    Does anyone know if any of the European races, particularly the classics, are broadcast on short wave? If so are they ever in English? I have thought from time to time about getting a little short wave set. This would probably encourage me to do it. And maybe even learn French so I can understand it!
    If it ain't broke, mess with it anyway!

    Shortwave I am not sure of, but you can hear many of them on real audio on Eurosport, www. eurosport.com.

    Not every race is on live audio, but a lot of them are. Last year I remember listening to Paris Roubaix and other spring classics, as well as the giro.
    You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. That's great...if you want to attract vermin.

    Well radio is a bit old fashioned nowadays, isn't it? There are quite a few races broadcasted on the internet. Some have own homepages and are updated every minute during the race. The eurosport-live-coverage is very helpful, but the races they don't broadcast on tv are usually not in reach. Some major races have homepages, where you can follow some written live-coverage. Some races in the Benelux-area are live updated on sportwereld.clickx.be.
    The only problem is with the latter, that it is written in Dutch (Flamish), but I can understand it a little bit and so it is helpful for me. But with written comments you might be able to find your way through if you buy a dictionary.

    You probably already know about it, and the coverage isn't even European, but if anyone is interested, AdventureSportsRadio will be providing coverage for the Solvano and Sea Otter Classics. They have some other good stuff going on, too. The archives have some interesting stuff, too.
