Support the Daily Peloton
We've come a long way folks... luckily with the advent of the internet
cycling fans can watch the race live in far away places live. It's a long way
from yesteryear of the late 1950's and early sixties when as a teenager I would
ride up the 15 miles up to the Hans Ohrt bike shop in Beverly Hills and pick up
magazines from Europe and Great Britain to see how Tommy Simpson and Jacques
Anquetil had fared in the tour and other European classics. With the mags coming
weekly; it was at least a week and sometimes more before you knew who won the
tour... every week was a cliff hanger. thankfully that day is gone.
This isn't a complete list of coverage; but if you have more to add please
post it on the Daily Peloton Forums or send a copy to me and I'll do my best to
update this with more sources. Of course we will endeavor to have our live
tickers so if you're stuck in your office you can pull up the latest action.
You're also welcome to join in the conversation with other fans around the
world in the Daily Peloton
Forums or join other fans a virtual living room to discuss the race action
during the race in our Chat Room.

Personally, I'm not a big fan of the tour tracker format as it gives you no
choice to down load just the video or audio and additional graphics etc that can
slow down delivery of the actual video and commentary, which I think is what most
of us want. But if you have good connection and sufficient memory and it beats
waiting a week or more find out what happened.
