Tour de France live Sat 4th July ITV4 for 5 mins!

by cat1commuter   June 23, 2009  

Was just checking on the Radio Times site for the start of the Tour de France coverage on ITV4. They have "Tour de France Live" on Saturday the 4th July from 16:30 to 16:35. I assume that this is a mistake, and we get a bit more than 5 minutes!

This has now been fixed. Live coverage on ITV4 from 16:30 to 19:00 on Sat 4th July, and 14:30 to 16:30 Sun 5th July too.

And a 1 hour highlights program every evening, which is repeated after lunch the next day.

two wheels good; four wheels bad

Im with you there Tony. Kreuziger looks fantastic and Im glad to see that Millar posted a competitive time.

Not a very nice TT course, extremely twisty with some tough climbing.

That Specialized SWorkes tt bike being ridden by SaxoBank is one ugly machine, surely that headtube/downtube/toptube is a fairing...there must be a 2" extension ahead of the fork steerer too. How does that fit in with uci regs? I know it was spotted on a pic with cancellara a few weeks back but to see it being ridden makes me even more confused about how its legal.

yeah, it's certainly not a looker is it, the depth of the head tube on that Giant must be a bit suspect too - not that I'm complaining I want to see new technology on the Tour

I was going to flag up the giant as well, despite Moreau putting in a poor (by his old standards) performance I am happy to see the kuota kueen-k going around monaco.

Going to be a good finish.

Cancellara for me.
