TSN(Canada's leading sports leader) now has full rights to broadcast the Tour de France this summer. Best thing is that its will be in High Definition, showcasing the beauty of cycling and France's lovely scenary.

Since I don't have any actual interesting news to post, I'll leave you with the interesting factoid of the day:

Movistar has set up a Continental feeder team, as you know. The last time they (under the name Banesto) had one, they released a few riders they felt weren't good enough to make their Pro Team.

Among those "not good enough" riders released were Carlos Sastre and Iban Mayo


Amazing what a couple of drops of this or that substance can do for a talentless rider...

(oops, did I say that out loud?)

This could also go very badly because I have a feeling Vic Rauter will comentate unless we just steal the Versus feed, like OLN has been doing for the past couple of years.
Also OLN dropped the coverage for this year and it was supposed to be going to Rogers SportsNet. Now I have a feeling TSN will have less of a priority for covering it over other "more canadian" sports events, and we might not see every stage in its entirety, even if they say quote "Will deliver complete coverage".

Atleast its in HD. Wink

Funny how when the new EPO test was introduced for the 2004 Tour, Mayo completely fell off the face of the earth, eh?

Now now isso, we shouldn't be so cynical, we are still far too young for that after all. It's not till we hit 25 that we gain the cynical old man edge.

Yep, Sastre is completely useless as a rider, except when he is doped up to his eyeballs, especially when he won that tour against all those riders more doped than him.

For me that's in a month.
I'm already cynical though

Ruben, you'd break the cynical scale if you became any more.
The day I turn 25, remind me to shoot myself.

And Café de Colombia were rejected.

These guys must be trying really hard to make their race as boring as possible.

Just a somewhat funny quote (Jakob Fuglsang).

I think it's great to be in a team with riders you like hanging out with. I can't see myself riding for Katusha. Imagine how it would be like staying in the same room with Vladimir Karpets for three weeks...

or maybe just maybe, Brrr and Karpets are room - mates?

But seriously, what's wrong with Karpets?

He gives a whole new meaning to the word serious.

In Germany, ARD and ZDF will stop live broadcasting in 2012Sad

You still have Eurosport, don't you?

Not in HD, and with more adverts in between.

But with less talking about doping...
ARD/ZDF talked about nothing else for 80% of the broadcast.

Eurosport found a good mix between both.
