I’m definitely a little late to the game here, and I’m not sure how I didn’t find out about this sooner, but the Amgen Tour de California is being streamed live from their site – and in a very slick fashion to boot!
Until now I had been catching up on the highlights through Versus (which is doing a great job as well – other than maybe Rasika Mathur ;-), but after my first trial of the “live” page I’m really impressed.
Other than slight hiccups and delays it’s a stellar experience (if only it came in HD). You get a large preview pane of the video coverage which you can interact with, change camera views on the fly, as well as track the riders progress through the course on a live-updated map. Also really fun, is to see the riders progress on the course elevation-profile, giving you a better understanding of the layout of the course. And of course you can check unofficial split and finish times. – Read More –
