- Our photographers report currently being in a dead zone for transmissions.  Stage 3 pics as soon as possible...

- Higher quality video feed now available at Tour Tracker.  Link at right.

- Tour of Missouri LIVE via Tour Tracker camera 2.  Link at right.

- The official broadcast start time, with satellite uplink and race commentary, for today's stage of the Tour of Missouri is 2:10pm Central (21:10 CET).  But as with each stage this week, the Tour Tracker folks will try to get, and maintain for as long as possible, a video feed before the official broadcast begins.

- We recommend you open our Twitter feed in a separate window now.  If ever we have a server outage, we will update on Twitter and direct you to a live coverage page on another server.

2009 Tour de l'Avenir map

The 46th edition of the Tour de l'Avenir ("Tour of the future" or "Under-23 Tour de France") starts today and runs through September 13.  A few years ago, the Tour de l'Avenir was open to Under-25 riders on trade teams as well as national teams; today it is reserved for Under-23 riders riding for national teams only.  Might the move to national teams at the Tour de l'Avenir be followed by the same for the Tour de France in the years ahead?  It has been under consideration.  Jan Bakelants of Belgium won in 2008 while Americans Tejay Van Garderen (8th) and Peter Stetina (10th) finished in the top 10.  The two Americans are back this year.  Joining them on Team USA:  Chris Barton, Kirk Carlsen, Daniel Holloway, and Alex Howes.  Team manager: Noel Dejonckheere, who runs the Team USA program in Belgium.

Notable past winners include Felice Gimondi (1964), Joop Zoetemelk (1969), Greg LeMond (1982), Miguel Indurain (1986), Laurent Fignon (1988), Johan Bruyneel (1990), and Denis Menchov (2001).
