Not sure i wanna know the result of this, gonna watch the highlights at 3.30

My issue is rather than eurosport showing any live cycling they decide to show a rerun of the moto gp from last week then show highlights of this a 3.30 and the dauphine at 4.30

Well, according to the schedules, British ES 2 has the TdS live at 15:30 and International ES 1 has 30mins of the Dauphine live at 14:15 CET (13:15 BST). Worth a look at steephill.tv on the off chance, otherwise I'll probably watch in French/German as appropriate.

Could be worse--you could be in the States. I had to wait until 11:30 PM last night for the first Dauphine stage 6 broadcast, and 12:30 AM this morning for the broadcast of yesterday's Tour de Suisse stage. NBC Sports was showing motocross, fishing, and horse racing all afternoon, then NHL hockey in the evening. I can see the hockey, but the rest were pretty much just "schedule filler" re-runs. Might as well have been infomercials.

And adding insult to injury, they bumped the cycling coverage like 10 minutes later than programmed, because they needed to do a lame post-game wrap-up of the NHL game. Fortunately I was up late and watching the coverage "live" because the DVR would have cut off the last 10 minutes of the TDS stage.

Fair enough i sympathize with that, on a normal day i wouldn't be in to watch anyway, just with it being a weekend id have liked it to have been live, but i watched a stream instead, and will watch the TdS later

I think I get 6 sprint points for Sagan  4

How is it the ASO site has all results in seconds, but the TDS is useless.

Think I'm doing OK. 5th overall yesterday thanks to Moser and Elmiger. Not so good today but did have Pinot (5th today so 4th overall) plus minor points for Levi and Danielson, so hoping to stay in the mix (just...)

Anyone NOT going with Sagan for the next few days?

Yep - agreed. I'll be losing Gesink and Leipheimer for Sagan and one other yet to be decided. So many options...

Sagan,
Boonen,
Rojas,
Haussler,
Gavazzi,
Spilak,
Effimkin,
Bonnet,
Izagirre,

and only 60 penalty points  1

Not even vaguely bothered about this or the CdD but tactically I shouldn't have to make any/many changes until we hit the hills again at which point I'll have a few transfers left.
