by Gkam84   January 29, 2013  

Eurosport have pulled the coverage, going to have to rely on the official site and UCI results page.....

This is going to get messy Angry

not cool... I always enjoy seeing riders blown off by the wind in Qatar.

Lots of change to the start list too so my squad is pretty fluid at the moment.

Yeah, a subscription part of their site that doesn't work outside of their region....So even then its not watchable Thinking

I don't know what the ASO are playing out, still getting updates from Lloyd and it looks like its a no go, not even highlights Sad

@GKam84 Unfortunately it won't be shown on Eurosport. You can view it for free online with the Al Jazeera website.

I'll call that bloke who's got all those Armstrong DVDs to shift, he has more than enough for each Fantasy Cycling player to have one apiece, we can watch Qatar but play some Phil and Paul seven-in-a-row commentary over it and pretend none of this ever happened...

My Qatar problem is team selection. The TTT is putting a slight spanner in the works.

No sign of any Garmin riders in the start list on the Fantasy game. Are they giving it a miss??

Yeah, its not a world tour race so not all the top teams are there. Only a few get an invite.

So everywhere I look it says its currently 1.45 in Qatar, and the stage started at 12.35, yet I cant find any info on how the race is going, official site showing nothing.

Its like trying to draw blood from a stone!

Anyone know if this is likely to affect much of eurosports coverage this year

I was kind of expecting the tour down under to be on ES (although to be fair i can't remember what it was on last year) and now no tour of qatar.

Cycling is pretty much the only reason i have eurosport (and the other 30 or so channels you have to get with it on virgin) so if their coverage drops significantly i might just save some money and watch events on the internet when i can.

TDU was on sky last year and is the only race sky show

As for the rest its some kind of contractual disagreement between ASO and Qatar, not that eurosport are wanting to drop coverage, so other races shouldn't be affected
