I caught the last 20k live on TizCycling
Now the last 30-40 k are up on Youtube, hopefully soon the rest of the race will show up on You Tube.

Paris-Nice on cable, NBCSN

For starters, FYI: https://twitter.com/StradeBianche - Nice video scenes, small format. Cancellara tweeted it's his favorite race and it's hard to argue against that.

Cycling, Sunday 3/4
Paris Nice: Stage 1 / 11:00 PM on NBCSNHD 848 / From Chatou to Meudon (135 km).

The other stages are on all week, but I didn't check the times.

If the Red Wings at the Wild runs long, the post-game league show will probably cut into the start of the coverage.

1 vote AYE

(okay, since everybody is DVR'ing it - just throwing this out there for debate: Spoiler starts at 8:00PM? i.e. Sunday stage: Monday 8:00PM)
(I'd be up for some non-spoiler hype before then - "whatta finish" but not "wow, 50K solo")

After posting, I wondered if the discussion req was for Strade Bianche or Paris Nice.

Strade Bianche, great to see new blood. It looks like the top tier knows this event may well become a classic, look who he beat. Is it the first new classic candidate since Amstel Gold?

I think Strade Bianche.

So many great story lines.

It was great to see Binoot finally bag a big win, he has been heralded as the next big thing for the last 2 years but hasn't been able to live up to the hype, but he sure delivered big time here.

Loved just LOVED seeing Bardet, skinny little stage race guy sticking it to all of the big classic dudes and beating them at their own game, man that is an old school real bike racer, super respect for the guy.

And Van Art, what can you say other then WOW!

A couple of other thoughts, Bora as a team looked pretty strong I think they had 3 in the top 15.
What happened to Van Avermet and Vanmarcke? they both looked strong in the races leading up but were completely invisible yesterday.

benoot rode like a boss

and i really liked van aert stepping out of his domain and making an impact. clearly struggling with the distance, what with his normal cross races only being an hour or so, he made an impact and hung on for an honorable 3rd. he's got a nice pedalstroke, maybe he's got the class to become something big on the road. great to see a scrawny grand tour rider like bardet making the race, as well.

with those epic conditions and benoot finishing solo covered head-to-toe with grime and his arms overhead, this was one for the ages! paris-roub-what?
