Live race coverage

Paris-Nice LIVE - Stage 2

 

 Notes:  (latest notes always appear at the top)

- What's the fastest way to see photos from today's stage of Paris-Nice?  Check our Yahoo photo gallery link at the bottom of the gray section at right; there are already photos of Alberto Contador in the yellow jersey at this morning's stage start.  Sometimes, AP photographers send in action shots from the road mid-stage, just as our own Tour of California photo team did last month.

- If you are joining us for the first time, you've come to the right place for following pro cycling year-round.  We put live internet cycling coverage just a click away.  Various broadcasters won't tell you about each other but we'll tell you about them all.  Now in our 5th season, with live coverage correspondents in the U.S. and Europe.

- Watching a live video feed for which you do not understand the spoken language?  Just mute the sound and then play a Eurosport audio feed (in "Live audio streaming" section at right) in the language of your choice.

- Paris-Nice live coverage on Eurosport has begun:  Live audio feeds are now playing the race. (links at right)

- Paris-Nice Eurosport LIVE.  (Bernie S.)

- Paris-Nice LIVE video streaming flash:  France TV live.

- Paris-Nice LIVE video now.  Alternatives to come as available.

- Eurosport's Paris-Nice live coverage begins today, increasing the possibility of there being live streaming options.  Most live feeds are geo-restricted for this race, however.  We will list any feeds we find at race time.

- Paris-Nice Stage 2 departs Saint-Brisson-sur-Loire at 11:40 CET (6:40am U.S. Eastern) and is expected in La Chapelle-Saint-Ursin at around 16:17 CET (11:17am U.S. Eastern).  Eurosport's Paris-Nice live coverage is scheduled to begin at 14:45 CET (9:45am U.S. Eastern).  France 4 is also broadcasting the race live starting at that time.  Eurosport live audio streaming should be available and we will list any available Paris-Nice live video streams.

- We recommend you open our Twitter feed in a separate window now.  If ever we have a server outage, we will update on Twitter and direct you to a live coverage page on another server.

- If you are able to watch Paris-Nice via satellite, MJ Ray has you covered in our cycling via satellite blog here.

Vuelta Ciclista a Murcia LIVE - Stage 4

 

 Notes:  (latest notes always appear at the top)

- 2009 Monte Paschi Eroica photos to come...

- We won't reveal the winner of Eroica in the event that some of you have access to RAI Tre coverage which should be underway.  Carlo in Pisa, Italy wrote in: "Concerning Montepaschi Eroica, your correspondant Bernie S. is certainly right in saying that the race will be on RAI3 but not live; what will be broadcast from 16:35 to 17:00 PM are some highlights.  As far as we know in Italy there should be no live coverage at all, neither on TV, nor on the satellite. Too bad - but it is a sunny day here in Tuscany and I'll be out there. Lucky guys are we!"  Thanks, Carlo!

- Regarding Monte Paschi Eroica:  Coverage on RAI Tre is NOT live and in fact the 3rd edition of the race is over.

- Vuelta a Murcia LIVE video now playing.  Text tickers updated.  (Our server went down earlier and we updated with links on Twitter while getting the server back up.)

- Coming later on Saturday:  2009 Paris-Nice Race Guide.

- Several people have asked about Monte Paschi Eroica live video streaming. (Montepaschi Strade Bianche - Eroica Toscana)  As we noted on Wednesday, live streaming is unlikely and UK correspondent Bernie S. says that the race will be on RAI 3 but not live.  But Thomas H. also wrote in to note that the race is live on the RAI Tre schedule, with geo-restricted (Italy) live streaming, listed at 16:35-17:00 CET (10:35-11am U.S. Eastern).  Thomas also notes that RAI Sport Piu will have a one-hour delayed show at 19:45 CET (1:45pm U.S. Eastern).  This information is confirmed by MJ Ray on our cycling via satellite blog here.  Will try to get this all sorted out during the Vuelta Ciclista a Murcia Stage 4 coverage.  Stay tuned.

- Vuelta a Murcia live streaming video is scheduled to begin at 16:00 CET (10am U.S. Eastern).  Updates at race time.

Vuelta Ciclista a Murcia LIVE - Stage 2

 

 Notes:  (latest notes always appear at the top)

- Text ticker reports race is neutralized until the final 3 kilometers.

- Vuelta a Murcia LIVE now via all 3 feeds (links at right).  Yes, today the live coverage has started way early (shortened stage) whereas yesterday it started way late.  Note that the first feed (7RM) requires more bandwidth to play smoothly.  If it freezes on you, then try one of the Alternative feeds.

- Vuelta a Murcia live streaming video is scheduled to begin at 16:00 CET (10am U.S. Eastern).  However, given the very late start for Stage 1 we're not sure what to expect for Stage 2.  Updates at race time.

Vuelta Ciclista a Murcia LIVE streaming video coverage

 

 Notes:  (latest notes always appear at the top)

- Several people have asked about live video of Saturday's Monte Paschi Eroica.  We're looking but are not optimistic at this point.

- Now listing a Google-translated ticker in English for your information and amusement.

- We've added an Alternative 2 Vuelta a Murcia live feed which is the same feed as Alternative 1 but in its own window.  This coverage is supposed to be live and indeed the stage is not over according to the "live" text ticker.  But either they posted the wrong expected stage finish times and/or the stage is way behind schedule.  (Bernie S.)

- Race is also now playing via 7RM.

- Race finally streaming live and thanks to Carlo (Italy), we're now listing a live text ticker.

- Vuelta a Murcia LIVE streaming flash:  Coverage playing now via Alternative feed. (link at right)

- Vuelta a Murcia: Nothing playing at the moment.  Monitoring.

- The Vuelta Mexico Telmex began March 1 and runs through March 4.  You can watch a 2:38 video clip of Stage 1 here.  Lance Armstrong presents the leader jersey.  (Bernie S.) Among the teams competing are Rock Racing (Hamilton, Baldwin), Team Type 1 (Wilson, Macgregor, Milne), Serramenti Pvc Diquigiovanni (Simoni), OUCH (Landis), Trek Livestrong (Phinney), and a U.S. National Team (Stetina).

- Vuelta a Murcia live streaming video should begin at 16:00 CET (10am U.S. Eastern).  Thanks, Thomas.
