- Eurosport France television coverage running late.  Still with tennis.  Paris-Tours to follow...

- 31 of 36 5-man teams entered in the U23 race today are French.  If a Frenchman doesn't win today, Bernard Hinault will go berserk a la Billy Jack.  (Stay off the new Bernard Hinault pedestrian bridge!) -Pete

- No American has ever reached the podium at Paris-Tours.  Today, American sprinter Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Slipstream) will go for the win.

- Today will see the last Paris-Tours finish on the famous Avenue de Grammont, due to the installation of tramway tracks in 2010.

- The town of Bonneval (km 44 for the Elite race and start town for the U23 race) yesterday unveiled a Tour de France street as well as a Bernard Hinault pedestrian bridge.  No word yet on whether or not Bernard tossed anyone off the bridge. -Pete

- LIVE ticker:  Eurosport France ticker (Google-translated to English).  More tickers listed at right.

- Paris-Tours book:  As far as I know, there is only one published book about the history of Paris-Tours, written by my good friend Charles Guenard (French, 2005, with preface by former TDF director Jean-Marie Leblanc).  There is currently just one copy left at Amazon.fr though they say they'll get more.  If you're ever in Paris on a Friday, you can stop by Charles' shop and get a signed copy.  Cover pics below with more info (in French) about the book on back cover.  -Pete

- Race organizer A.S.O. always produces nice event posters, though this year's Paris-Tours poster (see below) is nearly identical to last year's.  Large race posters are displayed throughout start/finish towns and a limited number of smaller versions are often available locally. -Pete

Tour de Cycling - Saturday


Paris-Tours:  An early breakaway, late in the season.  Will it go all the way?
Copyright © Pete Geyer/www.cyclingfans.com

- Sunday Update:  Race is underway.  Our 2009 Paris-Tours Live Online Coverage Guide is here.

- Tomorrow, Sunday, is the 103rd Paris-Tours and there will be live video streaming.  The Elite Men's race will start in Chartres instead of the usual Saint-Arnoult-en-Yvelines outside Paris.  It will finish in Tours, on the Avenue de Grammont for the last time due to the installation of tramway tracks next year.  (There is also an Under-23 race.  It starts in Bonneval and finishes in Tours.)  Philippe Gilbert (Silence-Lotto) is defending champion.  No American has ever reached the podium; Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Slipstream), winding down a breakout season, hopes to become the first American winner.  We'll post our full 2009 Paris-Tours Live Online Coverage Guide before the start of live television coverage.

- Flying overnight to Paris today, so next update late Thursday.  -Pete

- The 2010 Tour de France Route Presentation is one week from today at the Palais des Congres in Paris.  You will be able to watch the event LIVE on the internet, with audio commentary in English and FrenchLive streaming is scheduled to begin at 11:00 CET (5am U.S. Eastern), October 14.  (We will of course have the links for you + more info as the event approaches.)  The first half hour should include speeches from TDF organizer Amaury Sport Organization (A.S.O.) president Jean-Etienne Amaury and Tour director Christian Prudhomme, among others including officials from key regions visited during the 2010 Tour.  This is a good time for a nap.  Things will then get more interesting as breathtaking 12-minute video highlights of the 2009 Tour, set to music, remind everyone why we love this sport.  The event concludes with what everyone is waiting for: the presentation of the 2010 Tour de France race route.  Will there be a Team Time Trial?  (Rumor is no.)  How many Individual Time Trials and how long will they be?  How many mountaintop finishes?  With coastal winds already expected in week one, will organizers also throw in some cobblestone sections on the route from Rotterdam into Northern France to keep things interesting?  (Rumor is yes.  Remember Iban Mayo bouncing all over the road and crashing in 2004?)  Among the riders expected in attendance in Paris are Lance Armstrong and Alberto ContadorAlso expected "in the house":  Most everyone from team managers such as Marc Madiot and Johan Bruyneel to broadcasters Paul Sherwen, Phil Liggett and Bob Roll.  Will UCI President Pat McQuaid show up or will his "bad France week" this week extend into next week?  Will someone, perhaps a member of the French media, have sent bad boy and past regular attendee Alexandre Vinokourov an invitation in order to stir up trouble?  Stay tuned.  Not to be missed.  -Pete

- UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup:  Sporza appears to be geo-restricted, not working in the U.S.  No surprise.
