Cycling in Sydney Australia
The Italians are coming!
If you're one of the dedicated followers of world pro tour cycling then tonight's your night! The Giro kicks off at crazy o'clock in the morning and we'll be up cheering on 'our' Cadel. SBS has also taken the bold (awesome!) step of screening every stage live. More info from Tomo in his blog post and the whole TV schedule linked here for your viewing pleasure.
thats awesome! - I thought I read somewhere they were showing all stages but when I checked a week back the website only had limited stages.

Stage 1 broadcast finishes at 5:15 am.
Just in time to go out for ride!
I watched it, and was falling asleep until they picked up the pace about 50km from the end.
Come to think about it, if they raced all the way to the end they may have well missed the last lap downpour.
Ah the benefit of hindsight.
Are we allowed to talk about TOC here as well?
Rohan Dennis closing the gap on Wiggins (2nd on GC, 24 secs behind)
Is newbie Adam Yates forcing his way into the Greenedge TdF team? (4th on today's HC stage)
shh, I'll be watching the recorded race while I work today
a little disappointing there isn't that much commentary on the history of the areas they ride through, whereas for the TdF there's often an overload ...
