Tirreno-Adriatico Will Be Internet Streamed
Beginning at 1530 (Italy) the stages of the 2010 Tirreno-Adriatico, which begins tomorrow, will be live streamed at www.gazzetta.it
The other very good news is that Milan-Sanremo (20 March) and the Giro d'Italia (8 to 30 May), and the Giro di Lombardia (16 October) will also be streamed.
To reiterate, www.cyclingfans.com, also puts up the links to live video feeds of many races. This site is in English which may make it easier to find the feed(s).
In Italy, Tirreno-Adriatico will also be followed on TV on Rai 3 (direct daily from 15.30 to 16.30) and Rai Sport + (direct daily from 15.00 to around 16.30). One report says that in the USA the programming will be available on the Universal Sports (US) channel, check your schedules.
Alessandro Petacchi, whose presence was in doubt after a crash in training yesterday, will start.
