Videos and photos from the 2013 Team Time Trial World Championships

We couldn’t watch the 2013 TTT World Championships live, because the UCI decided not to include the stream (that journalists were watching in the press room) in the package of TV rights. BUT! We can watch some video, and look at photos! Here’s the UCI’s highlights

I really wish we could have seen more than those clips of the start and finish, because wow, Specialized-lululemon destroyed it!  And I always said I thought the second half would suit Rabobank-Liv/Giant – they were 3rd at the first checkpoint, behind ORICA-AIS, but once they hit the city and the sharp, technical corners, they pulled out all the stops to win silver!  Here are the Rabo’s after the race – with Annemiek van Vleuten, Lucinda Brand & Roxane Knetemann and Marianne Vos (in Dutch, of course!)

And here’s the ORICA post, with the DSs of the men’s and women’s races talking about their medals:


Here’s a mini video from Specialized with the Specialized-lulumon team being super-happy, and Carmen Small talking about how Specialized helped them win

And this might be geo-restricted to Australia, and I wish I could see this – video interview with Spec-lulu owner and manager Kristy Scrymgeour talking after the TTT.

And here’s video from the press conference, with Evelyn Stevens, Marianne Vos and Shara Gillow talking (in English)

Here’s a fun little video from the UCI, of three videos at the TTT – Noemi Cantele of BePink, who’s a very experienced rider, Nettie Edmondson of ORICA-AIS, racing road Worlds for the first time, and Boels-DolmansAdrie Visser, who retired after the TTT:


If you want photos, I LOVE these flickr sets from Wei YuetTTT practice and in the moments before the TTT started.  Photos from CJ Farqharson on CJFoto and on her race report; from Anton Vos on CorVos; Graham Watson on Cycling Weekly; a big gallery of the whole Champs on Yahoo Eurosport.

Full results and photos and post-race interviews with riders from Spec-lulu and ORICA, on Cyclingnews.

Race reports, from ORICA-AIS, Specialized-lululemon, Rabobank and Wiggle Honda.

More videos – the geo-restricted half hour highlights package from Aussie tv SBS

Videofrom the organisers:

And video interviews, from Specialized’s Ellen van Dijk (in Dutch) and Lisa Brennauer (in English):

and from ORICA’s Loes Gunnewijk:

For some countries, you might be able to see the UCI’s full video replay – with half an hour of women’s highlights – but it’s pretty heavily geo-restricted.

Want to complain about the fact the UCI and the host broadcaster didn’t want us to watch the women’s footage?

Dan and I talked about the race in our sweary women’s cycling podcast – and I also discussed it with John for the non-sweary Velocast podcast – and see how right I was, or not!
