2008 Tour de France live coverage preview

Eurosport will be showing tomorrow's Tour de France Teams Presentation live starting at around 18:00 CET (12pm U.S. Eastern).  If there is live video streaming of this event on the internet, we will post links tomorrow.

We will have photos from the teams presentation late tomorrow or early Friday.

Eurosport will of course broadcast every stage of the Tour live.  That means there should be, at minimum, Eurosport live audio online.  The live audio streams have worked on and off this year.  They are working at the moment.

As in years past, we expect to be able to list several sources for Tour de France live video streams .  We're working on locating sources this week and will list whatever we find before Saturday's stage start.  We will then continue to search for alternative streams once the race has begun.

We will also list the usual assortment of Tour de France live tickers, graphics, etc., as well as information on how to watch the Tour de France via satellite.

Breaking news:  Landis appeal dismissed by Court of Arbitration for Sport.  Landis has also been ordered to pay $100,000 to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for court costs.  More here .

2008 Tour de France live coverage

Tomorrow or Wednesday we'll take a first look at the live coverage options for following the 2008 Tour de France, which starts Saturday.  Also, we will have 2008 Tour de France photos every day starting with the Teams Presentation.

Landis verdict due today

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS-TAS) today will announce the result of Floyd Landis's appeal hearing held in March.  A Landis win would mean he'd reclaim his 2006 Tour de France title.

Meanwhile, cycling coach and Landis associate Arnie Baker today has published the second edition of his The Wiki Defense.  In an email to, Baker wrote " The CAS hearing has provided new, relevant, and significant information..... There are more than 100 new pages. The book is now about 440 pages."

Baker added, by way of a synopsis in his email, that the lab "lied, botched the test in the first place, and never even identified testosterone properly."

Did the Landis team demonstrate that the French lab (LNDD) is sloppy and unprofessional?  No doubt.  But were they able to convince the CAS-appointed lawyers that the evidence does not support a clear case of doping?  We'll know the answer to that today.
