Is anyone else having issues trying to sign up for NBC Cycling Gold? Whenever I try to give them my money, they just throw me to a page that wants me to sign up for a reminder for when cycling is back.

Their subscription service renewal is tied to the TdF, so Iím guessing theyíve paused it until there is more certainty that itís even going to happen.

From the comments it sounds like it was a finishing circuit so they all knew it was there at least, could maybe have done with pushing the finish line a few hundred metres back though.

Well, the same forces that prevented AToC from being held in 2020 are in play again for 2021. Namely the Tokyo Olympics are going to force the 2021 TdF to run earlier. Also fat chance at the USA having COVID-19 under control by next April/May anyway.

Make a shit-load of noise, not war.



I decided I'm not getting the sports package. Seems like second wave is happening in Europe so I can't imagine more than a few races going on. If I'm wrong I'll just watch them on youtube.

The Tour of California was always a bit strange, they'd have a few cool stages but lots of boring ones too, plus the commentary always sucked. Maybe when America finishes collapsing and California becomes the Federated states of the West Coast along with a few others, a new, better race can develop.

German Eurosport just showed the finish of SB 2018. Now they're on SB 2019. Even though the schedule says the women's race should have been on 10 minutes ago. UNACCEPTABLE

I didn't see any of the Vuelta a Burgos except that Remcoô won - how do they do finishing straights these days, spectator-wise? Assembling large crowds of shouting Spaniards/Italians sounds pretty unwise.
