Podcast 2017 Episode 31 – Being Italian IS a Tactic

This week we talk through the Junior and Elite Women’s Road Races from Bergen in Norway. There was all sorts of excitement in both races, and we talk through the highlights, the lowlights and the interesting moments that made the races. We also have a bit of a chat about riders to keep an eye on from the Junior racing, and of course we get a bit sidetracked, distracted and diverted some of the time too. (1:08:20 MIN / 62.57 MB)

Watch the 2017 Road Cycling World Championships!

17th-23rd September 2017

It’s that time of year again – Road World Championships, and this time we’re in Bergen, in Norway.   I’m here to tell you how to watch the women’s races, and follow them online.

I love World Championships, and Norway is so stunning.  The racing should be hilly, and hard, and most of it will be live somewhere at least – here’s the UCI TV guide, and it will all be shown on the UCI youtube.  If some things are shown in your region but not everything, you should be able to access that, but you may need a VPN (try setting it to Canada), though there should be streams on sites like this one and this one.

Norway is in the European timezone, CEST, so 1 hour ahead of UK BST, 6 hours ahead of North American EDT, and 8 hours behind Australian AEST.

Those Youtube livestreams should stay there after the races are over, if you miss them, and there’ll be highlights on the UCI Youtube, as well as on the TV channel websites that are showing the races.

All startlists and results will be on the Tissot Timing site, either on the UCI page and on Tissot’s own above, and the entry lists and results are on the UCI site.

Tissot means we’ll have livetiming, which will be great for the time trials, and may include lap information on the road races.

If you want to follow live on twitter, the Bergen2017 account is excellent, and I’m guessing the UCI women’s cycling twitter may update us about their races?  The hashtag is #Bergen2017, and I’ll update my live racing list with people who are at the race.

You can also follow the race instagram, facebook and snapchat as Bergen 2017, and their website is fantastic.  Check out the full programme, with a ton of amazing-looking events.  And there is also a lot more information, including all the rules, on the UCI Worlds portal.

Enjoy!  I’ll be on twitter all week, if you have any questions – or ask me in the comments below.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
