    Pro Cycling Back on TV! 2015

    Just watched the People's Choice Classic of the Tour Down Under.
    Looking forward to a good week of racing after the winter break.
    FWIW, I watch all my stuff on Universal Sports channel.
    This stuff really motivates me to get out there and ride.
    Cheers!

    Yes, it starts for real on Tuesday (tomorrow).

    Win (Nine Network) and Gem are televising it live and also putting up highlights. Last night Win televised the highlights of the People's Choice ... they were supposed to start at 10 pm, but the cricket went long and they didn't get to cycling until about 10:45 pm. Nevertheless, it was good to watch racing again.

    Here's the schedule ...
    TV and Radio coverage - Santos Tour Down Under

    So tomorrow, it will be broadcast live on Win (Nine) between 12:30 and 3 pm ... which doesn't do me much good because I'm at work then. And the highlights will be on at 11 pm. I could have some late nights this week.

    Really enjoying it!

    And I've been in the area where Stage 4, tomorrow, runs. We spent about a week there one Easter ... it'll be nice seeing it again.

    here. it's free, but you'll need to keep a few on your computer to serve as seeders for others because there is a minimum put/get ratio that must be maintained.

    link didn't work, give me a sec...

    fixed. ...i think.

    I'm watching it live on TV right now. It's a little bit warmer up there in Adelaide than it is down here in Hobart right now. Wish I were there!!
