Giro d'Italia: VERSUS will not have televised coverage

VERSUS, the "home of professional cycling" in the U.S., will not have televised coverage of the 2009 Giro d'Italia (May 9-31) despite the return this season of 7-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong to the pro peloton.  Armstrong is expected on the start line next month for what will be his first Giro.

However, for the 5th consecutive year cyclingfans.com will be covering the Giro with the best selection of live race coverage options for cycling fans on the internet.  And for the second consecutive year, Fotoreporter Sirotti will be providing us with world class photography every stage of the race.

-www.cyclingfans.com helps bring live race coverage to cycling fans worldwide, all season long, and works with leading online broadcasters on both sides of the Atlantic.

Tour de Romandie LIVE - Stage 1

2009 Tour de Romandie:  Frantisek Rabon (Team Columbia-Highroad),
Czech time trial champion, won yesterday's prologue.

- Tour de Romandie:  Thursday's Stage 2 departs La Chaux-de-fonds at 13:10 CET (7:10am U.S. Eastern).  Tour de Romandie live video on cycling.tv is scheduled to begin at 16:00 CET (10am U.S. Eastern).  "Live" coverage on SportItalia is also scheduled to begin at that time but tends to run late.

- Vuelta a Asturias:  Thursday will see 2 stages, a morning Stage 3A and an afternoon Stage 3B (a 14.2km individual time trial).  Stage 3A departs Gijon at 10:00 CET (4am U.S. Eastern) and is expected at the finish in Aviles at around 12:13 CET (6:13am U.S. Eastern).  Stage 3B at Castrillon gets underway when the first rider departs at 16:00 CET (10am U.S. Eastern).  It appears that rtpa.es will only be covering the afternoon stage, with live coverage scheduled to begin at 15:15 CET (9:15am U.S. Eastern).

- Tour of the Gila:  Organizers tell us they are working on possibly getting some form of live coverage.  Stay tuned.

- Tour de Romandie:  Due to bad weather conditions (snow in the mountains), today's Stage 1 has been cut in half.  It will skip the first part of the planned stage entirely, including the category 1 Col du Jaun climb, and will now depart from Bulle à Broc at 15:00 CET (9am U.S. Eastern).  The stage has been shortened to 87.6km from the original 176.2km.  (You can view an animation of the originally planned Stage 1 route here, quite a winding parcours in the mountains.)  The peloton is expected at the finish in Fribourg at around 17:00 CET (11am U.S. Eastern).  Tour de Romandie live video streaming on cycling.tv is scheduled to begin at 16:00 CET (10am U.S. Eastern).  Live coverage on SportItalia is also scheduled to begin at that time.

- Vuelta a Asturias:  Today's Stage 2 departs Llanes at 12:00 CET (6am U.S. Eastern).  Vuelta Asturias live video streaming on rtpa.es is scheduled to begin at 15:15 CET (9:15am U.S. Eastern).

Tour of the Gila Volunteers Needed

Lance Armstrong, Levi Leipheimer and Chris Horner will be among those competing in the 23rd Annual SRAM Tour of the Gila which starts tomorrow, April 29, and ends May 3.  Race organizers are still in need of volunteers.  If you think you may be able to help at any stages, please call 575-388-3222.

2009 Tour de Romandie starts tomorrow

The 2009 Tour de Romandie starts tomorrow, Tuesday, and runs through May 3.  Once again there will be Tour de Romandie live video streaming, notably on cycling.tv for cycling fans in North America.  The action gets underway with an evening 3.1km prologue in the streets of Lausanne, Switzerland.  You can watch an aerial view animation of the prologue course here.  The prologue will be the only individual effort against the clock this year as organizers are introducing, for the first time in the event's history, a Team Time Trial for Stage 3.  This will be appreciated by teams hoping to gain an edge in a couple of other big TTT opportunities this season, at the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France which sees the event return after a four-year absence.  The Tour de Romandie TTT will be short, though - just 14.8km.  The winner of the 2009 Tour de Romandie will be a rider capable of making winning moves in the hills and/or mountains of Switzerland.  Beautiful race ahead of the Giro.  We'll post our full Tour of Romandy Live Coverage Guide in the morning.

Little 500 LIVE on HDNet

Correction:  These races are LIVE on HDNet......we do not know if they will be streamed online.  Our apologies for any confusion.

The Indiana University Little 500 races are today (women's) and tomorrow (men's), live on HDNet.  (Thanks for the tip, Thom.)

Dramatized in the movie Breaking Away (1979), the Little 500 features teams of 4 riders racing relay-style for 200 laps (50.98 miles) (100 laps for the women) along a cinder track.  There is an official Little 500 bike that all riders must use.  For more info on that and on the rules, see the Little 500 Wikipedia page.

Should be exciting.

Indiana University Little 500 website here
(includes photo galleries from last year's events)
Women's race TODAY:  Friday, April 24, 4pm U.S. Eastern (22:00 CET)
Men's race:  Saturday, April 25, 2pm U.S. Eastern (20:00 CET)
