Sky is invincible. Not only is Froome in a class by himself, but Poels, Nieve, and Haneo are on a par with the GC contenders of other teams. They can't separate Froome from his team because his team...

I noticed that too. I like the idea some riders suggested of having balloons, which would be higher and more visible.

Stupid idea but the more I think about it, the more I like it. No matter how long between start times, you would get riders catching other riders, then, if you allowed drafting, there could be some...

Yes, the moto driver said he did a flip over the barrier. Video showed his bike on one side and him on the other.

Excellent lineup and should be an exciting race. I don't play the game, though.

My verdict now that I have watched 10 stages on RDS: Well worth it. My French is not good enough to understand much, but I can follow the race quite well with the video and captions, which are in...

Yes, Rogers owns Sportsnet.

I presume that Sportsnet does not own the rights to the Giro because they decided not to pay for it, probably because May is busy with hockey and baseball. It appears...

I got rid of Rogers years ago. Like everybody, hate both Bell and Rogers, so I get Shaw Direct satellite. A lesser evil.

Yes, I get both of the RDS channels, and it is only going to cost me $4, not $8. Watched stage 2 today and I didn't miss the English commentary much.

I just ordered RDS. My French isn't good enough to understand what they are saying, but for $8 / mo I will at least be able to watch. I can cancel when the Giro is over.

I see that Sportsnet will be broadcasting the Tour of California. It's not the Giro but better than nothing. Starts May 15.

The Giro is my favourite race so I am very disappointed. I wonder whether hockey is to blame.

We got the Tour of Yorkshire but not the Tour de Romandie, which had many more star cyclists. Haven't...

It is not just motos that are dangerous, but the cars too. Why does the team manager drive? They should have a professional driver whose only job is to drive. The manager is distracted because he is...

Not the fault of the Eurosport announcers, but the Spanish director who neglected the leaders until the final 100 m. Who was Kirby's partner for the final two stages? It wasn't Backstedt.

Lost my virginity along that coast, about 100 years ago, so it is special for me too.

Stage 5 was exciting too.

Just watched the final 20 km of stage 2 on Steephill. The first 2 stages are sprint finishes so I am quite satisfied watching just the end of the stage.

Paris Nice in the snow

Stage 3 was cancelled after 100 km, for an obvious reason.
