Ask RIDE…How can I watch more European racing?
After Tour Down Under, I really want to see some more of the early European races before the big Classics and Tours. SBS has a couple of races but where else can I watch them?

I think its pretty common to be enthused after an event like the Tour Down Under! Besides if you are searching for racing not covered by SBS this year (which includes Ronde van Vlaanderen live!) then perhaps try Eurosport either with pay TV or streamed live on the web. They cover pretty much everything.
In the office, we have French Eurosport and record many of the early season racing after we have gone home and watch them the following morning. A popular Belgian website, sporza.be has highlights videos with entertaining Flemish commentary. Click on ‘Wielrennen’ for cycling coverage.
I hope this helps and you get to see some more racing!
