- Update:  Live video has begun.

- Update:  Added more videos and articles, and more to come.  Media interest is of course very high, local media are particularly excited and CNN, ESPN, ESPN 2, Fox News, etc. are in town.  12 satellite trucks!  If all goes well, this should help Nevada City's chances of getting included in the Amgen Tour of California.  Also added live webcam view of race course from beautiful Historic National Hotel.  Image is updated every 40 seconds so it may never actually catch the peloton pass through but it offers a glimpse at crowds and weather conditions.

The 2009 Nevada City Classic Bicycle Race is today and there will be live video streaming for the professional men's event.  Nevada City, California is getting a lot of attention because Lance Armstrong, Levi Leipheimer and Chris Horner have entered the event ahead of July's Tour de France.  According to reports, 20,000 to 40,000 spectators are expected in Nevada City.....compared to 3,000 last year!  The cycling photography team of Laura Alber and Carlos Rico will be on site at the race getting us photos.  Here you'll find the essential links for following this race online, including news video clips and articles.  Photos and updates to the info and links to come.  -Pete
