How to follow the Trofeo Binda World Cup

The second round of the women’s Road World Cup is the Trofeo Alfredo Binda, on Sunday 24th March.  It’s a lovely race – 39 years old this year, named in honour of Alfredo Binda, an Italian cycling star from the 1920s and 30s, who trained Fausto Coppi and Gino Bartali.  It’s a superb, hilly race, and I will always love it, even if we can’t see it live…

So, how to follow it?  Well, I’ll be watching the excellent race twitter, and I’ve made a twitter list of people I think might tweet live updates.  And then there’ll be an hour-long highlights programme on RAI Sport 2 at 18:00-19:00 CET (or 18:15-19:15, schedules are hard) – and we’re really hoping the internet pirates might help with that, if we’re not in Italy…  There might be a Podium Café live-ish thread for the race too – check their women’s cycling pages tomorrow…. There’ll also be a 3-minute highlights package on the UCI youtube uploaded sometime on Sunday evening.

For more information on the race, I love Monty’s preview on Podium Café, and there are great previews on Les Déesses de la Route and Velofocus – and the race website is really, really good.

I interviewed Elisa Longo Borgini about the race and a lot more, on Podium Café – read it here – ORICA-AIS’ Amanda Spratt previewed the race on their team website – and Bizkaia-Durango’s Australian rider Joanne Hogan posted video previews of the climb – part 1 and part 2.  Hope that helps!

    Just found your page via Twitter. I am a huge fan and supporter of women’s professional cycling. Great page, great content. Hope women’s cycling continues to grow and gain the attention it deserves. Let your voices be heard and promote and market this side of cycling vociferously.
