Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I can't imagine riding a bicycle in this (eastcoast) wind. The Boston Marathon will go on as planned I understand but the winds will be more severe further south. Here in N.C. at 0900 the winds are already gusting over 40 mph.

The tracker flippin' horrible. It took me a good half hour of refreshing to finally get a video. Jittery video and the audio sounds like the the dude's on ludes. Good old AT&T technology.

This is the same web site Amgen had set up for the Tour of Cali, first few days were a cluster F. They actually blamed it on the weather and I have never heard of video servers back at headquarters being affected by weather. They finally got it straightened out in time to see the long stage down the Pacific Coast Highway across the Bixley Bridge. Perhaps by BrassKnob we will have a stream worth watching, the current one sucks.......

Dude your going to have to wait till NEXT Saturday and Sunday 4/28-29 because the jackasses at Vs. can seem to turn it around in time to show it in less than a week after it is over. That channel gets more F'ed up each season. Bet they will only do one more TDF the 2007 edition than all of us will have to find a way to get a Euro Sat feed or watch it on the web, thanks Vs. (stupid name)

It's not Vs that's producing the program. Kent Gordis is the producer, and they're not shooting on the same schedule as California. Georgia has a fraction of California's budget. Let's not beat them up about it.

Yea its working fine for me too if I want to watch a Garmin commercial on a continous loop.

Oh no the message at the top of the screen says "sorry folks the video and audio has been delayed again while the broadcasters get set up, stay tuned" and enjoy our ads. Gee shouldn't they have been set up 50k ago when the race started or is it just me being a dumb ass.

Okay, I've learned my lesson. I was willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, but then the site started crashing my browser.

I still hate Flash, btw.
