    The ToC Amgen web site is F'ed again today and they are blaminging it on rain

    got brief GPS info and a keyhole map with horner's GPS location and even a few minutes of lame audio from Ventura and the Velo News ass complaining about how they risk electrocution setting up for the coverage than NADA. F'em, I'm going back over to Velo News site.

    How can rain f'up the internet? You setup you gear in a dry location, connect to the web and do your coverage, what's the challenge in that? The TDF moves a city of media every day rain or shine and never drops coverage, hell the crazy french copter pilots even fly IFR in bad weather to get the job done. This is BS.

    Ventura and the Velonews guy have a videofeed now, so they're commenting on the race. Slightly less babbling now.

    HOPE, Velo News is reporting "a patch of blue sky" perhaps that will make the Amgen site work again since it doesn't seem to like rain, any change the copters will make it up............?

    you can switch the video to full screen by clicking live video in the top right corner. However, at that size it gets very pixelated.
