2009 Three Days of De Panne LIVE - Stage 3B


 Notes:  (latest notes always appear at the top)

- Watch Stage 3A and 3B video highlights on Sporza here.  (01:25)

- Okay, Sport+ on the TV say they're live.

- Delayed Time Trial coverage on Sport+ has begun.

- Sporza appears to be geo-restricted again, though via Twitter someone tells us that it isn't working for someone else in Belgium either!  TV coverage on Sport+ in France begins at 16:00 CET (10am U.S. Eastern).  In the TV guide, it is listed as live but as we've seen it tends to be 10-25km behind the actual racing.  We hope to have a Sport+ "live" stream when coverage begins.

- De Panne stage 3B, an individual time trial, starts at 14:30 CET (8:30am U.S. Eastern) when the first rider departs.

- 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.

- Welcome to our live coverage guide for the 2009 Three Days of De Panne.  (Also known as Les Trois Jours de La Panne (French) or KBC-Driedaagse De Panne-Koksijde (Dutch)).

2009 Three Days of De Panne LIVE - Stage 3A


 Notes:  (latest notes always appear at the top)

- This afternoon's Stage 3B individual time trial starts at 14:30 CET (8:30am U.S. Eastern).

- Filippo Pozzato (Katusha) lost 48 seconds held up by one of the crashes in the peloton and fell to second place overall behind Frederik Willems of Liquigas.  The sport.be ticker says that Pozzato has decided to skip this afternoon's time trial and is thus out of the race.  He is a favorite for Sunday's Ronde van Vlaanderen.

- That was a dangerous finishing circuit!  Two Garmin-Slipstream riders hit the same flower pot on consecutive trips around the circuit.  Unbelievable.  The first one was Svein Tuft, who appeared to be okay.  UK correspondent Bernie S. writes: "I dont think a guy like Svein Tuft who lived with just his dog in the Canadian wilderness is going to worry too much about falling over road furniture."  The second Garmin rider to hit the "road furniture" was announced on Sport+ as Michael Friedman.  He seemed okay.  Surely it wasn't Tuft again?

- The Sport+ commentators are Frédéric Brindelle and Cyrille Guimard (color).  Guimard is a former pro rider but best known as a very successful directeur sportif for cycling greats such as Bernard Hinault, Laurent Fignon, Lucien Van Impe and Greg LeMond.  He signed LeMond to his first pro contract and was also with Cofidis when they signed Lance Armstrong following Motorola's exit from the sport.

- Not quite live.  Looks like the Sport+ coverage is about 11+km behind the actual race.

- Stage 3A LIVE now on Sport+ (France).

- Sporza appears to be geo-restricted to Belgium again today.  We think there may be another live video feed starting at 11:00 CET (5am U.S. Eastern).   -Bernie S.

- According to the Google-translated ticker, Mark Cavendish may be doing the dishes this morning.  -Pete

- Today's morning stage 3A departed De Panne at 9:10 CET (3:10am U.S. Eastern) and is expected back at the finish in De Panne between 11:44 and 12:11 CET (5:44am and 6:11am U.S. Eastern).  The afternoon stage 3B, an individual time trial, starts at 14:30 CET (8:30am U.S. Eastern) when the first rider departs.  Three Days of De Panne live video coverage on cycling.tv is scheduled to begin at 10:00 CET (4am U.S. Eastern) for stage 3A and at 14:25 CET (8:25am U.S. Eastern) for stage 3B.  The Sporza schedule lists the same start times as CTV for both stages.

- 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 Three Days of De Panne LIVE - Stage 2


 Notes:  (latest notes always appear at the top)

- Two De Panne stages tomorrow.  The morning stage 3A departs De Panne at 9:10 CET (3:10am U.S. Eastern) and is expected back at the finish in De Panne between 11:44 and 12:11 CET (5:44am and 6:11am U.S. Eastern).  The afternoon stage 3B, an individual time trial, starts at 14:30 CET (8:30am U.S. Eastern) when the first rider departs.  Three Days of De Panne live video coverage on cycling.tv is scheduled to begin at 10:00 CET (4am U.S. Eastern) for stage 3A and at 14:25 CET (8:25am U.S. Eastern) for stage 3B.  The Sporza schedule lists the same start times as CTV for both stages.

- Watch De Panne Stage 2 video highlights here. (00:49)  Final kilometer here. (03:38)

- De Panne LIVE now on Sport+Correction: Coverage is not live, it is roughly 25km behind the actual race.

- Sporza should have been live by now.  So either they are having technical problems or the feed is now geo-restricted for this race.  It won't be any consolation to those of you waiting but CTV is blocked here in France and coverage on French TV (Sport+) doesn't begin until 16:00 CET (10am U.S. Eastern).  We continue to monitor Sporza and will also see if there is a live stream for Sport+ when the television coverage begins.

- Time posted on Sporza live video page may be in error.  Elsewhere on their site, they say coverage begins each day at 14:25 CET.  Stay tuned.

- Three Days of De Panne LIVE now on cycling.tv.

- Three Days of De Panne Stage 2 departs Zottegem at 11:20 CET (5:20am U.S. Eastern) and is expected at the finish in Koksijde (Oostduinkerke) between 16:17 and 17:10 CET (10:17am and 11:10am U.S. Eastern).  Live video streaming on cycling.tv and on Sporza is scheduled to begin at 14:00 CET (8am U.S. Eastern).

2004 Criterium International:  Lance Armstrong last rode the Criterium International in 2004.  All the French fans' eyes, as well as the cameras of OLN, were on the man who the previous July had joined the club of 5-time winners of the Tour de France.  Armstrong originally planned to ride the 2009 Criterium International but changed his schedule in order to race at the Vuelta a Castilla y Leon.

2009 UCI Track Cycling World Championships Live Coverage

The 2009 UCI Track Cycling World Championships are being held in Pruszkow, Poland, March 25-29.  There is worldwide television coverage but much of it appears to be limited to highlights or partial weekend coverage.  Eurosport, the BBC, and TVP Sport (Poland) stand out for what looks like significant live coverage of the events.  We are on the look-out for anyone providing live streaming video over the internet and will post what we find.

Saturday update: Unable to find any reliable live streams for Track Worlds today. 

Note: The Eurosport audio feeds have not been working lately.  They seem to go offline for some reason once or twice every year and then re-appear.  For those with satellite coverage, MJ Ray has posted info in our cycling via satellite blog here.
