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…

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

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.
