Cycling.TV Schedule

New, 43 comments

So Het Volk is going to be available LIVE this weekend, starting at 5am Pacific, 8am Eastern... if somehow I am reading their schedule correctly. It's free, though premium members will have a higher bitrate.

This is great, but I also noticed that they've posted a rather extensive Classics schedule, rather quietly, after months of anticipation. The Monuments aren't listed yet -- last year they got added at the last minute. But for now Cycling.TV will carry live: Update [2007-2-28 19:46:51 by chris]:OK, I checked my email, and they've sent me the entire season schedule! Too numerous to list, and I won't go into free/premium only/etc, so here, instead, are the high points:

  • Het Volk
  • Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne
  • What's left of Paris-Nice
  • Dwaars Door Vlaanderen
  • E3 Prijs (!)
  • Fleche Brabanconne/Brabantse Pijl
  • Three Days of De Panne
  • Gent-Wevelgem (!!)
  • Vuelta a Pais Vasco
  • Paris-Roubaix!!
  • Amstel Gold
  • Fleche Wallonne
  • Liege-Bastogne-Liege
  • Tour de Romandie
  • Dauphine Libere
  • Tour de Suisse
  • DeutschlandTour
  • GP Plouay
  • Vuelta a Espana!
  • World Championships
  • Zuri Metzgete
  • Lombardia!

Something called the Versus Channel (presumably a separate subscription for VS feeds) will be carrying the Italian races, and by races I mean the whole shootin match: Tirreno-Adriatico, Milan-San Remo, and the Giro d'Italia!

This looks a lot like last year, when the Tour of Flanders was the only real hole in last year's schedule, and there again we can still hope for coverage somehow. Also, please remember that if/when you subscribe to Cycling.TV premium, I'd be grateful if you did so through the Podium Cafe. It doesn't cost you any extra, and I get a rare opportunity to offset a few hours' operating costs. Click HERE, or see the yellow logo in the links section, right sidebar, scroll down a bit. Thanks!

Oh, and they have a new portal, bunch of interactive features, etc., which are added or set to launch this week. Don't ask me what exactly they are, but it sounds interesting.
