I thought the official Tour De France site did a great job as far as having play by play reports as the stage progressed. They also have the "official" results from each stage a bit sooner.

This year for the Giro, I got the reports from Eurosport. There was also a video feed that would send a screen grab from the TV coverage every 5 sec. Combine that with all the good info on CyclingNews.com after each stage and I had a great time following the race on the web. NOT THAT IT COULD EVER REPLACE MY OLN!! It was awesome to be able to watch each stage on tv, and you can't get better commentators than Phil Ligget and Paul Sherwin, hell even Bobke did a good job.

The Lance Armstrong site will get a little "exclusive" content probably. I think they did last year.

I can't wait to watch the Tour!

How could I have forgotten Graham Watson! This is THE place to go for great photos. During the Giro, they had regular updates to the gallery for that race every 4 or 5 stages I think. I would expect at least as much for the Tour.

I like two sites, and check them every day:
www.cyclingnews.com (aussie)
www.cycling4all.com (netherlands, in English, and the webmaster is very nice and will respond to emails personally.)

I followed the Giro daily from reports on www.cyclingnews.com. I thought the write-ups and the photos were very good. If this trend continues, I'll be keeping up on the TdF through that site.
