Thursday videos – and live women’s cycling this weekend
There are some fun videos around today, so here’s a collection – with some links for watching cycling live this week.
Firstly, a little UCI video about life on the road for women’s pro riders – with Katie Colclough of Specialized-lululemon and ORICA-AIS riders Jessie Maclean, Gracie Elvin, Sungeun Gu and Shara Gillow:
This isn’t about cycle sport, but it’s interesting – BBC2’s Newsnight had a feature comparing everyday cycling in the Netherlands and Britain. It features Jools Walker of the Vélo-City-Girl blog and Vulpine, and there are some background stats and facts on the BBC Magazine site. If you scroll down there, you can also watch the feature (look for the box with the arrow – it might be georestricted to the UK)
This week it’s the 2013 Junior Track World Championships, and here’s the full video of the Day 1 Evening session:
If you just want the finals, here are the timestamps:
- Women’s scratch race from 1:23:53
- Men’s Team Pursuit bronze & gold finals from 1:40:52
- Women’s Team Sprint bronze & gold finals from 2:01:00

I always love the Thüringen Rundfahrt, and here’s 44 highlights minutes video in German from the 2013 race, with English interviews
There’s more video, in English (Australian!) with interviews from the podium riders, on the Women’s Cycling.net youtube
