Tour Down Under 2012 (on a cold winter night)   2 comments

What a world we live in. Here I am on a dark winter evening in Edmonton, the temperature is -17C – and I am watching live coverage of the 5th stage of the Tour Down Under from the Adelaide area in Australia, where it is a hot, sunny afternoon.

The web coverage of this event is being streamed by Sky Sports via the ProCyclingLive website. I wasn’t thinking about the event being on but was fortunate to notice a tweet from @procyclinglive. A special treat is that the commentary is being provided by Paul Sherwen and Phil Liggett, legendary Tour de France commentators.

It’s not the same as riding oneself but watching these guys cruise along the Australian coast is not a bad way to spend a winter’s evening.
