Tour of Ireland
If anyone can check out stage two, I highly recomend seeing it. I drove over the Healy pass last week, it should be a very cool stage. I just wish they rode it in the other direction, the switchbacks are better that way.
I know it's on Irish TV, not sure about eurosport.
I'm just hoping someone torrents it.
Funny, was just reading the velonews feature on the race:

You can see Healy pass from my Grandmother's farm. I rode from Kenmare out there in '95 (~12m) on a rented bike and those rolling hills killed me! They never, ever stop...
man, sure is pretty out there.
I don't know where the fans are going to stand. The roads are about a car width and a quarter wide.
Here's the link
That's damn cool.
Even cooler, I've got buddies in that race. Go colavita!
If anyone has seen a torrent please post it. So far it's not up on Demoniod. Today must have been a great stage.

Wine + Bread + Cheese + History = a top ten day in anyone's life.
there are video highlights of Tour of Ireland here
nice scenery. And CSC are a monstrous team when they feel like flexing their muscle, too bad their new stagiare crashed out. Boassen-Hagen and Breschel are both guys who will be fun to watch in the future.
