    So, when Cycling.tv says...

    ...that coverage starts at 14:00 GMT, they really mean 15:00. *******s.

    American DST started this weekend on March 9. European DST doesn't start until March 30. So before March 9, 14:00 GMT was 10:00 EDT. Between March 9 and March 30, 14:00 GMT is 11:00 EDT. After March 30, 14:00 GMT will again be 10:00 EDT.

    Point being, coverage did indeed start at 14:00 GMT.

    Then that's not really 15:00, is it?
