Yup. It's hard to find a Canadian livestream, particularly at two am.

Yeah, I'm keeping up via twitter. The ladies are FLYING!

10 men went under 10" in the Flying 200M. Crazy.

How brilliant has it been! Living in the same city means racing is in the same time zone, live free to air on every night and live streaming during the day all over a long weekend!

Plus on Sunday night we have Paris Roubaix live on free to air as well, though I have a road TT on Monday so will most likely record it and hope no one tells me the result at the TT...

Likewise. At least they fixed the photo comments - intitially they weren't posting that the power value 146 was 1.46 == (1460 -1469)W. Rather 146 and guessing where the rider was on the track whether to put a one or two in front...
