Giro d'Italia live @TBA

The wait is over. Yes , you are right. Its time for the Giro d'italia - one of the 3 grand tours, the other 2 being Tour De France and Vuelta  a España. Think the Tour de France is bigger? gotta ask an Italian ( at the risk of being beaten up:)).

The next 21 days are going to be lots of fun and if you want to have some good time with fellow bikers, do drop by at TBA to watch the live action. The refrigerator has just been  Giro-ed.

We are yet to receive timing for each day, but tentatively the telecast will start around 5.00 pm IST, leaving out the Time Trial days.

  1. which channel or website will it be playing on., wont be able to make it to the store, might try watching it from work. Any info would be helpful.

    PS: Plus the amgen tour of the california too is next week.

  2. Check the 'Live streaming' section at the bottom of the page We generally connect to one of the Euro Sport channels. The Tour of California is going to clash with the Tour of Italy:(. The time must be different?

  3. Thanks for the link Krish. I'm not sure of the time for the TDC, most likely it wont clash.
