The Amgen Tour of California is arguably the kickoff of the 2009 pro cycling season for American cycling fans.Â Â And lucky for them, there’s lots of great coverage out there on the race.Â My three recommendations:
- Watch it live at the Adobe Tourtracker.Â Even if you don’t give a damn about cycling, you have to check this out.Â A brilliant use of technology.Â It’s only running from just before until just after each day’s race, so check in between noon and 4pm PST.
- Use Steephill.tv’s fantastic (as usual) Tour of California “dashboard”, featuring route info, video feed links, and highlights to find and follow the action.
- Read Lyne Lamoureux’s Podium In Sight for thoughtful analysis, interviews, and daily pictures.
I’ll be heading to watch the ToC later this week, but strictly as a fan.Â Any interesting coverage or good shots that show up here will be little more than a happy accident, so go check out the links above.
