Has anyone heard whether OLN will broadcast the one-day classics coming up in March/April? Is the Discovery Channel taking over the cycling tv coverage due to Mr. Armstrong and his team? Let us know;)

Yes lets do :) Thanks for the cover of the coverage Jennifer :D

Anytime. I know that additional cycling coverage would cut into rodeo riding and bass fishing coverage, but that's a price we'll have to pay...;)

Yes, I found out about the coverage through thepaceline.com website. I am disappointed their will be no daily coverage of the giro. :mad:

If the Oregonian News prints the results before I see it on the Teley well.... hell hath frozen over.
Satire is tragedy plus time.

You can always follow the results on the web. It's actually kind of fun to follow along with velonews.com's site or cyclingnews as they type in the important stuff and the minutiae to fill the time. Not the same as watching on the big screen, but better than not knowing at all 'til next week...;)

I agree Jen. Even when I've got the VCR running for the TdF, I'll log into cyclingews at work, or after watching, to read their "live" coverage. There's a lot of interesting tidbits in there sometimes. And it's the closest you can get for the "non-covered" races. You other fans looking for coverage, take note.

I wonder who actually watches bull riding? Do you think they have a forum out there and complain about it being interrupted by cyling coverage? That would crack me up.:p

02-28-2005, 11:16 PM
I'll bet if you do a Google search you'd find their forums. And dollars to donuts there'll be a post about that durned event on bicycles in July...;)

They don't support Linux yet, but the rest of you should REALLY enjoy:


Apparently they've already provided live coverage of several early-spring classics over the Internet. George Hincapie even won one of them.

I discovered this the other day via cyclingnews or pez and it's great. Watched the British cyclocross championship and a few stages of the Tour of Quatar so far. I'm really not that picky. If it's guys or gals on bikes, I'm happy. Woohoo!

I watched the Paris-Nice race on OLN. Does it make anyone else just feel happy to know that cycling season has started again?:) My 8 year old daughter watches all the races with me. Too bad I can barely get her on a 2 wheeler!

:p Hi, it's been a while! I have been swamped this semester. Does anyone have access to Eurosport TV here in America? I was looking at the website and the Giro is on LIVE everyday! I am so jealous. ;) Oln is doing a great job this spring covering the classics. My husband was on the course of Paris-Roubiax and had a blast watching the guys and seeing Lance in his last classic ever. :cool: Tour of Georgia was an experience for my not so cycling fan sister and her family. They walked up Brass Town Bald and watched Lance follow Floyd up the Mountain. Yea Cycling!
