You can follow all my pain and misery for yourself at cyclingdirt.org. They will be covering all the action real time. I don't know if they will be using the helicopter for air coverage, but one can only hope.
The course is great! You climb, descend and repeat until you want only for the sweet relief of death. On a positive note it looks like the start list will be stacked with talent making this one of the toughest fields of this year.
