It’s that time of the year again. Every July I spend hour after hour watching the limited television coverage of the Tour de France. We only get about two hours of daily race coverage here in the U.S., so I often look for alternative ways to catch the action. Last year I found daily update videos on a TDF YouTube channel and I’m subscribed again. This year, the main TDF site has news of Google bringing Street View to Google Maps for every race stage. That’s about the closest I’ll ever get to "walking" a stage course, so I’ve already spent the first hour of today virtually on the course with a real cup of coffee. And I haven’t even broken a sweat yet!

  1. While that is a really cool application of the Google Streetview technology, I would go completely insane if my mouse clicks sounded like the ones in this video.

    I know the feeling. Here in Norway sports coverage (apart from boring football) is abysmal. I’ve been trying to find a way to see all the Formula 1 action. There are various outlets on the internet but they’re not very reliable. I’d even be willing to pay for something decent but so far, no luck. Yes, I know there’s a digital tv channel that shows some of the action but I’m holding onto my analogue signal for as long as possible.

  3. Great to find another TDF fiend :)
    Living in California, I’ll be up at 5:30 to watch the action as it unfolds.
