The LIVE CENTRE (http://www.woc2014.info/woc.php) has been working really well this week. With live video, commentary, and GPS tracks, you are able to follow along all of the excitement from your computer! It costs ~$10 to watch 1 race live. If you don't want to get up early, or have to work, then you can always watch the action later on, as the TV and GPS coverage is free to access later in the day.

Hope the Canadian team can hear us cheering loud and clear from Canada!
