Tour de Georgia underway

Stage 1, Augusta to Macon, is on the road.

The only live coverage I see anywhere on the web is here at VeloNews.

Post in the comments if you find others.

Update: Bruce from AMD Pro Cycling's website suggested the Tour's own live updates page, which combines CyclingNews.com commentary and a peloton tracker from iTrak. As eye candy, the tracker rocks, but I'm not totally sold on the implementation just yet.

Thanks, Bruce -- that's a nice link because of the iTrak "Live race map" feature.

Unfortunately, instead of rider names or numbers, it's got descriptive names: Right now, I think "Pace" is the leader, Bowman, "Sprint" is the chasers (Pinotti/Fanelli), then "Peloton" which is understandable, but then "Broom"? I'm assuming there's no gruppetto today, since the pace has been very slow, but maybe there is...

Gundog -- the link Bruce posted actually incorporates the CyclingNews commentary, along with a course map showing current positions of the main groups.

Robbie Hunter of Phonak takes the first stage.

Do you guys know if there's a streaming audio link of the race radio? That would be sweet.

"As eye candy, the tracker rocks, but I'm not totally sold on the implementation just yet."

Looks like they're not sold on the implementation yet, either. Today the updates just have the CyclingNews feed - no iTrak live race map. What I want to see is a live race tracker on a Google Maps interface, so you can switch from map view to satellite view. As long as we're dreaming, might as well throw in a 3D topo map with fly-throughs and on-screen avatars for each rider (with mouse-overs that show mph, cadence, heartrate, GC, etc).
