 Notes:  (latest notes always appear at the top)

- Stage 2 has ended but if you want to watch re-runs of Starsky et Hutch dubbed in French, Direct8 has it each day at 19:45 CET (1:45pm U.S. Eastern).  Many French celebrities mention this series when asked what their favorite TV show is!  And David Soul (who played Hutch) lived for a time in the 1990s on a Seine river boat near the Eiffel Tower, before settling in London and adding British citizenship.  Where else but cyclingfans.com can you get this vital information?  -Pete

- IB3 TV feed may be geo-restricted.  (Not playing in Chicago or U.K.). Direct8 should be viewable worldwide, however. (Alternative link should open in media player with a bit larger video.)

- Live streaming video now playing on Direct8, with Mikis Cerieix  and former Fdjeux rider Carlos Da Cruz commentating.

- Added link to IB3 radio under Live streaming audio.  This is Catalan audio and coverage should start each day at 15:10 CET (9:10am U.S. Eastern).  Thanks, Jafet!

- More Mallorca Challenge photos here.

- Starting with Monday's Stage 2, live streaming video will begin each day at 15:10 CET (9:10am U.S. Eastern).

Stage 2 Profile

- The Mallorca Challenge Stage 2 starts at 11:45 CET (5:45am U.S. Eastern) Monday.  Direct8 (France) live coverage of Stage 2 is scheduled to begin at 15:10 CET (9:10am U.S. Eastern).  ib3.tv (Spain) live coverage should also begin at around that time.

2009 Mallorca Challenge LIVE streaming video - Stage 1

 

 Notes:  (latest notes always appear at the top)

- SuperPrestige Cyclo-cross now streaming live.  (info and links in post below this one)

- Reminder:  ib3.tv is scheduled to begin streaming today's stage (obviously delayed) at 15:15 CET (9:15am U.S. Eastern).  We'll see if technical problems were at the source or not.  Starting tomorrow through Thursday, both ib3.tv and Direct8 should provide live video from the race.

- More technical problems with Direct8 in Paris receiving live images from the race in Spain.  Hopefully things will be better tomorrow.

- I have an old copy of Cycle Passion in which Carlos da Cruz describes his training routes in and out of the canals east of Paris. -Bernie S.

- For those of you interested in watching today's Cyclo-cross Superprestige live coverage, it should begin in under 15 minutes, at 14:30 CET (8:30am U.S. Eastern).  Info and links are in the post below this one.

- Live streaming video of the race is back on Direct8.  Nice aerial shots.

- Ticker now reports there is a 7-man breakaway after the 4th tour. 

- According to the live text ticker (link below right), the peloton is all together after the third (of 10) tour of the circuit.

- Direct8 say they are not getting the race feed at the moment but they expect to get it back shortly.

- Live streaming video has begun!  Mikis Cerieix is commentating, with former Fdjeux rider Carlos Da Cruz doing color commentary.

- Race feed should begin shortly.  Unlike in the U.S., French TV is NOT strict about time schedules.  They should get around to the race eventually, after the cats playing Wii tennis and the newly-married couple that got set on fire when wedding guests bombarded them with silly string that ignited when it hit the candles on the cake.  (they're okay but do not try this at home)

- Direct8 is showing cats playing tennis on the Nintendo Wii.

- Direct8 schedule indeed shows race coverage from 13:00 to roughly 14:25 CET which is the approximate stage finish time.  If we get live video today, it may start in just over 10 minutes.  Stay tuned.  -Pete

- The Direct8 TV schedule has changed.  It now shows race coverage starting at 13:00 CET (7am U.S. Eastern), following the animal show.  Perhaps we'll get the race afterall?  -Bernie S. (U.K.)

- The Direct8 (France) live video feed may be geo-restricted.  (Feed is currently labeled "geo-targeted streaming" in the U.S. and is showing an animal program instead of the race.)  -Pete (U.S.)

- Starting with Monday's Stage 2, live streaming video will begin each day at 15:10 CET (9:10am U.S. Eastern).

Stage 1 Profile

- Stage 1 from Palma to Palma features an 11.6km circuit to be ridden 10 times for a total of 116km.

- The Mallorca Challenge Stage 1 starts at 11:50 CET (5:50am U.S. Eastern) Sunday.  Direct8 (France) live coverage of Stage 1 is scheduled to begin at 12:30 CET (6:30am U.S. Eastern).  ib3.tv (Spain) coverage is delayed today and is not scheduled to begin until 15:15 CET (9:15am U.S. Eastern).

2009 Tour of Qatar:  Frederiek Nolf before Stage 3
Photo Sirotti for cyclingfans.com

- Today's stage was shortened (to just 40km) and neutralized following the tragic death overnight, in his sleep, of young rider Frederiek Nolf (Team Topsport Vlaanderen-Mercator).  "Cycling is in mourning when you lose such a young talent, a guy like him," said cycling legend Eddy Merckx, who is the technical sponsor for the team.  More here.  Our condolences to the family and friends of Frederiek.

2009 Tour of Qatar streaming - Stage 3

 

 Notes:  (latest notes always appear at the top)

- Tour of Qatar live coverage of Stage 4 on Eurosport starts tomorrow at 12:30 CET (6:30am U.S. Eastern).  Looks like there will only be about 30 minutes of coverage as the stage is expected to end at around 13:00 CET (7am U.S. Eastern).  Our Stage 4 Race Guide and Stage 3 photos will be posted later tonight.  (Stage 2 photos are now available in our cycling photography section.)

- Again, today's Eurosport coverage of the Tour of Qatar Stage 3 is not listed as live; indeed, the 14:30 CET start time (16:30pm Doha time) for the coverage comes after the expected finish for the stage (approx. 15:48pm Doha time).  The Eurosport audio feeds should be playing though, so you can listen along "as live".  Tomorrow (Wednesday), live coverage should return for Stage 4, according to the Eurosport schedule.

- For Tour of Qatar (and cycling generally) via satellite info, check out our cycling via satellite blog by MJ Ray here.

- The Tour of Qatar Stage 3 starts at 12:45pm local time (10:45 CET or 4:45am U.S. Eastern).  Eurosport coverage of Stage 3 is scheduled to begin at 14:30 CET (8:30am U.S. Eastern).  Note that today's coverage is NOT live.  We continue to look for Tour of Qatar video highlights and clips.
