Cyclingnews is now presenting live coverage of races such as the Tour de France on handheld devices that are GPRS-compatible. Now, even if you have to leave home or the office, you can still follow the action of your favourite races. The mobile devices can display the latest updates coming in at the same time as the main site. For the past 12 months, Cyclingnews has been providing this service in beta mode, but now, it's time to go public.

If you are already familiar with GPRS - i.e., if you can get email on your handset, then you have GPRS - so start surfing straight away! Just enter this URL into your device's browser and you'll be cruising. It's live.cyclingnews.com/wap/.

If not, then the following backgrounder goes into more detail about WAP, GPRS, CN, and many other acronyms.
