    Does anyone know if the actuall race starts at 7am BST or is it 6am as coverage starts at 6am on the BBC.

    BBC site says it starts at 5am. This contradicts Keith’s post of 6am to 9am, so my alarm clock would be glad of a precise answer too! 6am seems a guarantee though, new UK time, as if the race doesn’t start til 7am you can at least watch the build up, or snooze for an hour. Jake Humphrey *yawn*. Maybe for those of us without then an hour of build up is useful still.
