    If you live directly on the east coast you might have a chance to capture the Astra signal and get all the european channels. Everyone else in the US is hosed.

    I have the embeded feed player bookmarked. At the time the Cycling.TV crapped out, Eurosport was broadcasting Badminton on the feed.

    Badminton? People watch that on TV?

    We get something called British Eurosport here in the UK. Before the Paris-Nice they were showing a Biathlon. After P-N they showed the Tirreno-Adriatico. Maybe the badminton was on another of the Eurosport channels...

    Im sorry it was Biathalon. Not Badminton. D'oh. Now that i think about it I was a little disapointed that i had to leave the office. I like the idea of skiing and shooting guns.

    I love the hate on a podium finisher of the TdF and the guy that just won the stage today at Paris-Nice. The feed showed him talking in to race radio a few seconds after Popo "popped." My guess is the question went something like this:

    "So.. since Gesink has to race for time, anyone mind if I take the free ride for a stage win?"

    If any of us did it, we'd be called smart. Cadel does it, and he sucks? Was there a better tactic for him to play?

    I couldn't get the feed from Cycling.TV yesterday, either. What pisses me off is that it only seems to fail on important races. Last year, I signed up for the Giro and everything went fine until the Zoncolan stage and I had the same problems as yesterday.

    They charge money and then can't deliver.

    Nope. Not his fault his team 'leader' cracked. Pro cycling is a team sport. There are no more Hinaults. If Cadel hadnt gone for it, he'd would have gotten a much worst lambasting for not taking the win, seeing as Silence/Lotto has 2 men in a the break at the end.

    Remember when they said a few years back that Popovich would be the next greatest thing since Lance. That's not working out too good is it?

    I dont get why so many people think there is or should be chivalry in pro cycling (or amature cycling for that matter). It's a brutal chessgame and winning is the only thing that counts. Thats what the sponsors are paying for.

    Since I'm kind-of new to cycling, you'll excuse my ignorance... Why don't we like Cadel? As an Australian living in the US, I've supported him because he's Ozzie. Educate me.

    Cadel doesn't make for an exciting race.
