How to watch Nommay – the last CX World Cup of the season
On Sunday 26th January, it’s the final round of the 2013/14 Cyclocross World Cup series, Nommay, in France. And as with the whole of the series, both the women’s and men’s races will be streamed live, on the UCI Youtube – and after the race is done, they’ll be left there to watch as an archive. Here’s the feed, and below I’ll give you more information about following the race.
The stream will have English commentary, by Ant McCrossan, and if you want streams in Flemish (including maybe the women’s race too!), you can find those in the usual places (three links there, just in case)
The women’s race starts at 13:30 European time (that’s 12:30pm UK; 7:30 am USA EDT; 11:30pm Australia AEDT) and the men’s at 15:00 CET (2pm UK; 9am USA EDT, 1am Monday Aus AEDT)
Katie Compton has already won the women’s World Cup series, but it’ll be a last chance for riders who aren’t Compton (who’s won all but one so far) and Marianne Vos to win a World Cup – and also an idea to see who’s looking good for the World Championships. You can find the current rankings for the women and the men on the UCI website.
There’s a ton of information about the race on the Nommay website – I especially like the course map, where, if you click on the numbers, you’ll see photos of what’s there. There’ll be live in-race updates on the men’s race on Sporza’s Match Center for Nommay, and a livethread on Podium Café where I’ll be chatting about the race. After the race, look on Cyclephotos.co.uk for photos, and as always, I’m on twitter as @_pigeons_
