Le Tour de France help! Internet viewing?

Post by oompah18 » Thu Jun 27, 2013 1:04 am

We are in the process of moving to mummola ie pieni punanien mökki metsassa, for about a year (our home is being bulldozed and totally rebuilt, it has been declared unsafe for expansion or even improvement!) We cant get canal plus or viasat there apparently. I will go mad without my football, but at least I have my internet radio, live commentary(hopefully) for that. Anyway, Le tour is about to start, and I wondered if anyone can recommend viewing the Men in Lycra through the internet somehow.
Any help much appreciated for my annual fix, kiitos!

This is my go-to site for Cycling races. They have links to streams in multiple languages. Good luck!

Procyclinglive.com

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
I found the English cycling magazines in Tampere Sokos store, and they include le Tour guides too, very helpful.
My claim to fame: one summer I cycled the Pyyrannees W France area, including the Col du Tourmalet, it was even scarier than it looked on TV when the peloton zoomed down! It took me about 4 hrs to get up the col, (I am an around the world tourer, not even an around the town racer!) but it was worth it! The next day, I took a roadside spot to watch the race come by, there was about 2 hrs of advertising cars throwing out freebies, and then the cyclists came, zwoosh, & they were gone in the blink of an eyelid, but it was sooooooooooooo worth it!
