Amgen Tour of California
The 2008 Amgen Tour of California takes place from February 17th through 24th. This is a 8 day, 650 mile road bike race. The tour can be watched on the Versus network, if your local cable company offers that channel. Here is a link to the tour schedule being shown on Versus.
The times of the broadcast are mostly at 11 PM which is a bit inconvenient for me. I just found a site that is showing live video of the tour. Remember, this is pacific time, I live on the east coast so the video feed is actually 3 hours ahead of California time.Live Tour Video
Watch live video of the tour on the Adobe Tour Tracker website. The live video feed includes a variety of supporting data that any fan of bike racing will enjoy. The detailed race data includes: race time, miles ridden, miles to go, speed, % grade, break gap, distance between the leaders and the peloton, course map, course profile, riders in peloton (by rank) and riders in break. Some of the big name cyclists participating in this event, that you may recognize, include Tom Boonen, Levi Leipheimer, Fabian Cancellara, Stuart O'Grady and George Hincapie. Check it out!
