Notes:

- Starting tomorrow:  Tour de Georgia live video, audio commentary, Radio Tour audio, rider data...

- Versus (OLN) has taped coverage of Paris-Roubaix today, for those of you in the U.S.  Check our Versus schedule link and your local listings.


- Eurosport video streams are up for Germany, Italy and Spain.


- Eurosport's various audio feeds are now streaming live .  Demand for these feeds will be very high today.


- Eurosport is now saying its Paris-Roubaix broadcast will begin at 14:15 CET (8:15am U.S. Eastern).


- While we wait for the broadcast coverage to begin, here is Eurosport's Paris-Roubaix preview video , including interviews of Tom Boonen, Alessandro Ballan and Philippe Gilbert at yesterday's teams presentation in Compiegne, site of this morning's race departure.

- Our next update here after 13:00 CET (7am U.S. Eastern).

- The race is underway, with the official site ticker the first to go live.

- Eurosport's broadcast coverage of Paris-Roubaix is scheduled to begin at around 14:00 CET (8am U.S. Eastern).

- Fabian Cancellara (Team CSC) is defending champion and has looked very strong of late.  He is the sole 3-star favorite today for French sports daily L'EQUIPE.  But Tour of Flanders winner Alessandro Ballan and Flanders runner-up Leif Hoste are also obviously in great form.  And one can never count out Tom Boonen .   Vladimir Gusev and Tomas Vaitkus of Discovery Channel are also very strong and may make this race interesting.  Paris-Roubaix always seems to deliver great drama and anything can happen as we saw with George Hincapie's crash last year as well as the incident at the train crossing.  In the train crossing incident, Gusev and Hoste of Discovery Channel, and Peter Van Petegem of Davitamon-Lotto were disqualified.  A protest by Discovery Channel has still not been resolved by the UCI and race organizer ASO, fined for the incident, has its fingers crossed that something like this won't happen today.
