My favourite sporting event


The Tour de France starts in two weeks time and I am getting myself organised for watching.  Because I am in the southern part of the world it means that the watching happens late at night and into the early hours of the next day.

I have received my ordered Tour Guide and have been reading up on the various teams. 

SBS, our television channel, that has the broadcast rights for the tour, has put out a link to help better understand what is happening in the Tour, for those who may be new to watching the Tour.

You can find the site here.  I’m not sure if you will be able to access the video part outside Australia but you should certainly be able to access the text.  A worthwhile read to help your understanding of the bike race as there are so many aspects to follow.

I am certainly looking forward to it.

  1. The “Tour Tracker” app they have is also very useful. You can live stream the races and/or watch the highlights on that if you’re not near a TV. It’s so good that it’s on free-to-air television here! 🙂

      Thanks I should have mentioned that. It is so good for checking out places on the various classifications as well.

  2. Getting some of the dinners prepared and frozen so that nothing can interefere. Looking forward to “revisiting ” Brittany though Le Tour. i really enjoy the banter of the commentators and of course Seán Kelly. (Not that I am biased!!!!!!)

      We get the Australian commentary team and my favourite there is the former sprinter Robbie McEwan. We sometimes get bits of commentary from overseas and I agree that the banter of the conversation with them can be quite funny at times. We have a female commentator this year in Bridie McDonald and her comments are always perceptive. A great addition to the commentary team.
