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.
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!
