The 2012 Tour of California gets started on Sunday, and the race will be available multiple ways, both online and off. NBC Sports Network is once again carrying the race. Stage one hits the road at 10:50am PDT, but television coverage never starts until the riders have been on the road for a few hours.
NBC Sports at 2pm PDT, 5pm EDT
Streaming at the official Tour of California site
New this year is the Radioshack Tour Tracker (available for itunes and Android) which allows you to follow the tour on your mobile device. Live video, tracking the peloton as it moves, photos, statistics and more will be available via the tracker. This should be an interesting solution for people who want to follow the race before the television coverage starts.
