  • They usually have a live net feed, but I didn't see anything there.
    However, it does say this:
    The presence of foreign media in the Tour of Murcia is increasing every passing day. The last to apply for accreditation and information of Murcia have been round the Eurosport television network.

    I assume, as his lordship is present, it's for "Planet", but maybe they'll do a Volta type package.....

    Click on the stage pages, then click Rutómetro - you get a street by street guide.

    For what it's worth, the TV channels are charging about €100,000 to televise a one day race, and about €40,000 per stage of a week long race. Some race organisers are struggling to get the funds for this but without the TV coverage the race will struggle to get teams and also backing from local government and sponsors alike.

    Interesting that it finishes the same day Paris Nice starts. For us that will mean two stages back to back to watch which is great and there are interesting names competing in both, although the majority are in Paris Nice. Wiggins first stage race of 2010 with Lance.

    Several Spanish teams are not turning up due to various disagreements with the organisers, but even if these issues had been solved, would LLS and Valverde even raced their anyway given it would have meant missing PN? Maybe Valverde would have turned up due to it being his home region.

    Doesn't look like you'll be watching back-to-back on Sunday, as a live Murcia feed seems very unlikely, now.
    I think it looks like we are in Belgium again, tomorrow for the GP Samyn. That's going to have a couple of hours of net feed.

    Saturday, there looks like live feed for the first time for the Eroica. :)

    For back to back, we have to wait a week tomorrow, when T-A joins P-N on Eurosport.

    I don't think Eroica is live:

    http://www.gazzetta.it/grandeciclismo/m ... _n01.shtml

    Says at the bottom the programme starts at 16.20, but the timetable has the race finishing at 15.18 :wink:

    Still, swifty highlights are better than nothing.

    Yeah, Raitre is 16-25 to 17-25CET, but word on the street is that there's a live feed.
    Same link has it as 13-00 to 15-45CET.
    The man from Sky says it's live, too, but may need to piggy back off a proxy Italian. :P

    Anyhow, we'll find out come Saturday.

    Cyclingfans now says that there will be a live feed for the race, tomorrow. :)

    We posted interactive stage maps a couple hours ago:

    No live video for stage 1. Murcia TV aired Bonanza and Starsky y Hutch reruns instead.
