The Amgen Tour of California is arguably the kickoff of the 2009 pro cycling season for American cycling fans. And lucky for them, there’s lots of great coverage out there on the race. My three recommendations:
- Watch it live at the Adobe Tourtracker. Even if you don’t give a damn about cycling, you have to check this out. A brilliant use of technology. 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. 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.
