March 27, 2006 is an online TV channel dedicated to the sport of pro cycling. Already this year they've shown a number of live one day classics from Belgium, absolutely free to anyone with a good broadband connection. You can also watch on-demand edited highlights of recent races and some of the Pro Tour races from last year.

The next live race is the 3 Days of De Panne, which begins tomorrow at 1pm GMT. I've already watched some live races from this season, and the quality is top-notch.

Quality find, afx237vl.

Could be very useful for North Americans who became addicted to cycling during the Armstrong Era... not to name any names...

And good to see that Tuvalu is making some money out of it as well.

Wow. This is really amazing. Thanks for this, afx!

Yeah, no kidding. Thanks again.

No probs. They're not going to be showing the Tour de France any time soon, but these smaller races can still be pretty exciting to watch. They also said in the commentary a few days ago that they'll be showing the Dauphine Libere and the Tour de Romandie this year - which is quite cool, because they're both big races that are hardly ever shown outside of their host countries. Good indicators for the Tour, too.

I watched all day Sunday. Wonderful not to have to watch over paid jerks toss a ball through a hoop. Pro and College.

That's awesome. Yet another reason for me to get absolutely nothing accomplished at work. Thanks for the link.

posted by willthrill72 at 08:27 AM on March 29, 2006 is great and hopefully will gain access to other Pro Tour races that are not carried in North America. While I am grateful that OLN carries the races they do, aside from the Tour de France, their coverage is too short and too late. How about that Tom Boonen!?

Boonen is frickin' incredible. He's been literally playing with his opponents in the early races so far. Only a crash or a lightning strike will stop him winning the Tour of Flanders...

What did I tell you? In-cred-ible.
