    Real-time Race Reports

    I went with Velonews.com for the Giro, but I've heard talk of other sites being better for real-time updates. What are some of the alternatives and pros/cons regarding catching the Tour from the office?

    I like cyclingnews.com for live race coverage. They update more frequently than velonews, and throw in interviews and jokes when the action is slow. No cool maps or graphics, just text, which is good for the office - your boss walks in, he can't tell it's not work.

    I've pretty much got their live update window up for the entire month of July.

    For important stages, I'll follow Eurosport, Cycling News, and Velonews at the same time. Eurosport also has good live audio. Often, the race organization will have a stream as well (http://www.letour.fr).
