    Doubtful. I don't recall it being streamed in the last number of years.

    Thanks, tis a shame.

  • TVE showed this last year - don't think it was live though.

    Now you mention it, I do remember watching at least the Valverde, Henao, Gesink, and Quintana (?) finish on one of the races.

    edit: just searched for last year's thread, and all we had was a ticker.
  • Live coverage stopped about 4 or 5 years ago.
    Not that it was very reliable.

    If you are really desperate there is a webcam on the auditorium with the option (Paseo I and Paseo II) which gives a view up and down the road where the race takes place. :)

  • I'm here in Mallorca for the racing

    How serious - really - is the racing out there?

    I half expect to see the Wiggins kids riding with daddy - mum sat at the roadside reading Hola! jumping up to run along side with drinks...

    Other pros peeling off the back of the peloton if they start to get a bit puffed out... Only to start again the next day...

    It all feels a bit ... "Dad's Army"?

    Serious enough if you're at the front end. It isn't the Amstel Curacao.

    Another win for Sacha Modolo in today's race - an uphill drag sprint:

    1. MODOLO Sacha Lampre - Merida 4:07:53
    2. SWIFT Ben Team Sky
    3. MEERSMAN Gianni Omega Pharma - Quick-Step Cycling Team
    4. TRENTIN Matteo Omega Pharma - Quick-Step Cycling Team
    5. REYNES MIMO Vicente IAM Cycling
  • Recorded today's race.
    Shots at the start of Quintana, Wiggins and the current best GT rider in the world, Chris "Lampre" Horner. :P
    At the finish it looked as if Swift was miffed at Meersman squeezing him into the barriers. Becoming a Gianni trademark, that.
    Expect it will be on CF video section in a bit.

    Hills tomorrow.

    Thanks for that. It certainly looked like Meersman was a little naughty at the finish. Still, it's good to see Swift with some form. He needs a big season. Also good by Modolo again, stepping up a level well.

  • Yep - Meersman definitely in the wrong there. Windy day in Majorca - OPQS actually split the main group at one point.

    Plenty of climbing tomorrow:

    Looking forward to seeing Henao and Uran go head to head. Plenty of other riders that will be good to see how they are going - Horner, Sebastian Henao, Yates Bros, Teklehaimanot, LL Sanchez, Lofkvist, Dayer Quintana...

  • 23km to go Mejias & Piedra have 19" on Del Pino Kangert, Vakoc & Belkov, 2'25" on Henao & Kwiatkowski and 2'49" on peloton.

    Henao and @michalkwiatek gaining ground on Mejias and Piedra. 1’40” back now. 2’05” gap to the peloton

  • This race has got a bunch of exciting talent.

  • Whoever is driving the peloton is closing it all down.

  • The real racers Henao and Kwia are however currently flying. Joined up - 7 riders or so. They are out in the lead with the peloton about 1min back. 9ks.

    Ooo come on Kwiatkowski!
    He won. EBH second, Gavazzi third (so I guess the rest of the break got caught)

    Was trying to get some work done, otherwise I'd have tried to follow on twitter.

    Sounds like good racing! OPQS looking strong and racking up the wins already.
