Fixie, from prowomenscycling:
The Australian coverage seems to start at 14:05 CEST (1:05pm BST/8:05am EDT/10:05pm AEST). I’ve only found direct reference to this on Australia’s SBS Cycling Central, where they say:

http://www.sbs.com.au/cyclingcentral/vi ... lonne-2017 blah chicks online blah, cos SBS is showing broadcast at 10:55.

Apparently this coverage might also be on the European Eurosport Player from 14:15 CEST (1:15pm BST; 8:15am EDT) but without commentary, and that definitely wouldn’t be live.

So maybe delayed feed online?

Under 23 is $225.


Maybe it pays to shop around? Not that low at a number of clubs I looked at on the website. :?


Don't confuse the CA licence with the CA Licence + Club Membership costs.

SKCC U23 = $377
CCCC U23 = $367
Bruns U23 = $360
Coburg U23 = $332
Cobram U23 = $327

Hmm, VERY interesting that - some clubs definitely taking a chunk of cash from their members, over and above what CA charges..... Not sure what they provide for the extra cash either...

Is that what counts as coverage of cycling now? Or just women's cycling? Hopeless. :roll:

Edit: commentary starting, of men, at 10.31.

Some clubs have extensive clubrooms (which are capital funded by city council, but running costs are clubs - such as Brunswick). The funds also go into running club official events such as AGM, Monthly meeting locations when offsite (eg: no club rooms available), and club running costs (printing, website, social media advertising, and forward planning with external parties).

So clubs that are more active on all of those fronts, even if they have many members, probably have quite justifiable Club Membership costs.

SBS is showing 2.5 hours of LaCourse tonight from 6pm. Longer coverage than previously I think, but I wonder if it's worth the loss of Paris crowds and prestige. Not that there was a choice.

The format is odd but they had to do something after the tone deaf decision to replace the Paris crit with a hill climb, so they added the second stage after learning women can ride two days in a row I guess. So the top 20ish climbers from stage one go into a tt pursuit the same day as the men (coverage unknown). And few climbers are great tters, so all the spin in the world doesn't make it a showcase of the best in each discipline. If they'd let the whole field do it, with a Paris crit chaser to make a three day stage race, fine. I'm over it.

Good race with lots of support in social media and roadside. And despite the delay in commentary, good call by Ant McCrossan and Sharon Laws.

^SBS was promoting a replay so it should be around.

Sorry for the spoiler but this is awesome (via Daniel Lloyd, last 5km of Izoard) ...

La Course stage two on SBS tonight at 9pm. Much more coverage than previously; just hope it's not cut too short for chizzes from the tdf show. Hope it's McCrossan and Laws again.
