Who's watching the cycling?
Nothing too exciting so far. A break of eight relatively unknown riders got a 20-minute lead but it's coming down slowly but surely. The Slovenia and Belgium teams are riding at the front of the peloton.
Van Avermaet (after a big shift at the front) and Fraille have been dropped. Thomas and TGH have both crashed. It looks like Pog is riding for Rog.

The Italians have accelerated and there are splits in the peloton.
Valverde has been dropped.

Oh, this is the Olympics where the BBC have lost all the coverage. Nice.

Just switched on. Imagine my surprise to hear that G had crashed.

Valverde has got back into the peloton.

HAT Carapaz!

So much for the Tour taking it out of them - 1st and 3rd were 3rd and 1st in the Tour, and separated by the winner of three Tour stages.

Barbra Banda from Zambia is making some money this tournament. She has back to back hat tricks against Holland and China. Maybe we should put in a bid for her, she's a beast.

Yes unfortunately, I think the IOC sold the rights for all Europe to Discovery. I canít see many people paying £30 to watch it though.

Funk Butter 24-07-2021 11:05 AM

I don't know if you guys can use https://gorin.jp/live/ without a VPN, but they have all the streams. It helps if you know Japanese, but you can probably muddle your way thru.

EDIT: I absolutely jinxed myself as the Japan v GB women's football is nowhere to be found. (Now that I think about it, that game might be an NHK exclusive.)

Not a single channel on my sport channel heavy tv package is showing any Olympics as yet.

PALACEWU 24-07-2021 03:06 PM

8 dedicated channels here.

It's on eurosport which is part of the discovery corporate octopus these days. Can watch absolutely anything, it's a bit oo much.

Why is there a separate women's section for air rifle shooting anyway?

It seems odd considering that weightlifting is now mixed.

Yes. Ended up watching softball earlier, which won't be happening again.

Enjoyed the archery and shooting though.

Was about to go to bed but then put on the skateboarding. Could watch it for hours.
