Do they have a complete list of events they are covering? I find a small list that says “many more”. .

I would not suggest anyone pay NBCSports/Gold money now, they are dissolving the streaming as it has been known.

I am using up last years subscription...

I have this going as I type:

Sports Gold doesn't have Flanders listed I note...

I'd not heard of the Volta a Catalunya before.

Set your DVR

NBCSN has a one hour show of Paris - Nice daily starting 3/8 at 2 AM EST. So there's some coverage available without a Sports Gold subscription. There also may be some coverage on the Peacock Streaming Network.

I just watched Strade Bianche on Rai TV using Express VPN. It was in Italian, but it was fun nonetheless. SBS in Australia is covering Paris-Nice, so that will be English coverage with good commentators.

If anyone is interested, you can get 15 months of Express VPN for a hundred bucks. That gives you access to coverage from around the world in a variety of languages. There are free VPNs out there, but I tried a few and they were either slow, unreliable or didn't work at all. I used Express VPN for last year's abbreviated season and it worked great.

"15 months of Express VPN for a hundred bucks"

Went for a look, and only see $99.95 for 12 mo.

Link?


I used PureVPN to watch the Giro 2020 and a few other races that don't get to US. Think it was 10.95/Mo and only used for one mo.

Tiz Streams

I've been using Tiz for several years, mostly for CX.
There are issues with their streams at time. While watching Strada Bianche today and also for CX it has a history of Freezing many times.
Sometimes a Browser Refresh gets it back and other times it does not. Strada today was the GCN Stream with Dan Lloyd as one of the announcers.
Last weekend Tiz stream of Omloop had the same issues.
All that being said, they do have more race coverage then anyone else and it's free.

Sparky, try searching for "Best VPN 2021". Express VPN puts the 15-month promo in articles like that. Here's one I found: https://www.itproportal.com/guides/the-best-vpn-service/

Cavagna Paris Nice, so much for electronics

I had a mechanical problem just before the really steep part," said Cavagna.

Di2??

The Frenchman initially thought the battery had died but closer inspection from the Deceuninck-QuickStep mechanics showed that crash mode had been inadvertently activated, which meant his rear mech was locked in place...



How it managed to enter crash mode to be determined I guess. ;O

Since the demise of Eurosport in Australia, I use the GCN app on my phone and cast it to my television. To get the race coverage on the app costs me $A65 for an annual subscription - that's about $US50.
