Videos from various 2015 National Cyclocross Championships

This weekend was all ‘cross all the time (well…  except in the USA, where mud?  Roots?  Local politics? stopped the Nationals…) and because I love you, here’s what video I’ve found – with how to watch that postponed American Champs live.  UPDATE!  Now with videos from the British and German champs…


Video of the u23 men and the elite women

And here’s a post-race video interview with the winner (again) Sanne Cant (click on the box with the triangle at the bottom)

Short highlights clip that’s geo-restricted to Belgium on het Nieuwsblad’s site (want to watch?  See below).  Race report and results on Cyclingnews; Report and photos on



Watch Pauline Ferrand-Prévot‘s win on this video of the French national champs – it’s geo-restricted to France (see below for how you can watch).  Results in here.



Short video clip – thanks Velonistas Berlin!


Great Britain

I was at the British National Champs, and the full race will be online later this week, but here’s my race report on Cyclingnews, with the full results – please do click through!  My recording of what Helen Wyman had to say after her win – and here’s the Cyclingnews write-up of this.

UPDATE!  Here’s the Welsh-language video of the race (thanks to all the lovely people, Keith, Jarvis, everyone else, who sent that to me, I genuinely appreciate it)

What’s it like racing Nationals for the first time?  Read Alice Miller’s blog and find out all about it.  It was only because Alice and Tom gave me a lift that I got to go the the race – THANK YOU SO MUCH!  And from the other end of the race, Helen’s blog on winning for the ninth time, after a disappointing season.



Here’s Eva Lechner talking after winning her Champs again

and Alice Arzuffi after winning the u23s – and Sofia Beggin after winning the Juniors

Race report on Cicloweb


The Netherlands

I love this little video of what the course looked like after Day 1! Guess who won…  Video highlights on NOS and more clips.  Big thanks for these, Byron.

Results on Cyclingnews and here’s the podium video – and a clip from the podium riders laughing a lot in the press conference.

Here’s the finish of the Junior women’s race – and here’s the podium presentation



Full results – and race report (in Spanish or via google translate) on the fantastic El Pelotón.  Thanks so much Yolanda and Marcós!



Course preview!

The women’s race will be live here on Monday 12th January from 3:20 USA CST (9:20pm UK GMT; 22:20 Europe CET; 8:20am Tuesady Aussie AEDT) and archived afterwards (elite women start at 2:56:40, thanks Bobby)

Interviews after – elite winner Katie Compton after winning her 11th consecutive title

and u23 winner Ellen Noble

UPDATE!  I really feel for the young USA women who, for weird reasons, were pulled from their race after only 1 lap.  Read this excellent blog about what happened – imagine how it felt for the young girls and their families who scrambled to stay in Austin an extra day, only to be treated like they were a nuisance.  Really informative comments, too.


If you find any more, please do share it in the comments – or tell me on twitter, I’ll be updating this post with more videos and info as I find them.  And if you want to watch the restricted videos, add Hola or Tunnelbear, set them to the relevant countries and try again.  If you use Tunnelbear, turn it off as soon as the stream’s running, to say your allocation.
