    Cycling highlights video?

    Are there some good videos I could order off amazon for the cycling 2012 season? I would like something to watch while on the trainer and have a vague idea of what went on last year since I don't get anything on my tv.

    I like the giro a lot but don't see a 2012 one...

    Thanks!

    To answer a slightly different question, Sufferfest videos like The Wretched provide a structured trainer workout with licensed video from professional events such as the Tour de France. I don't see a mention of the Giro.

    Check out World Cycling Productions; they offer a lot of pro races on DVD. Amazon does offer some but not as much as WCP, just have to do a search for whatever race you are looking for to see.

    It's mostly from a GreenEDGE point of view, but their videos are entertaining and you can find them all on YouTube.

    You can also find a lot of the major races on YouTube if you do a search. For example, here is Paris Roubaix.

    Steephill.tv

    Steephill.tv has links to online video from broadcasters around the world. I see highlights from the 2012 Giro are still available ... at least to Australia.
