Tour de France 2005

Tour de France. I do not have access to OLN through my cable provider. I want to be able to hear, (in english), live commentary of the Tour. I figured I would be able to find this on the web but have not been able to so far. I would like also find out what resources others are using to follow the grande boucle, any good blogs I should know about?

Best answer: You can listen to a live stream at EuroSport.

Response by poster: Oops just found this. Still interested in other resources, it would be fun to find something kinda offbeat too,

Lance is also doing a podcast this year, you can find it here.

I would recommend for your daily text Tour fix... they're based in Australia I believe, and are wildly fanatical about exhaustive Tour coverage. They post live updates as the race progresses each day.

VeloNews offers similar "play-by-play" text coverage of each stage.

Response by poster: Still no audio....Eurosport has a audio link but it is not working, seems this may be specific to the usa...

Oh, I've found the Eurosport streaming page doesn't like Firefox... I had to open it in IE to get it to play.

Torrents of the OLN broadcasts have just started showing up thank god. Also, this discussion has some suggestions for live feeds.

Best answer: As said on the other, newer thread, here is the Direct WMA link from Euro Sport - worked this morning.
