CrossVegas! The first Cyclocross World Cup of 2016/7

Wednesday 21st September 2016

Cyclocross is here!  Well, OK, desert CX, but it’s still the first World Cup of the season – CrossVegas 2016, the 10th edition of this race – and it’ll be live!

The women race at 8:15pm USA PDT (11:15pm EDT; 4:15am UK BST; 05:15 Euro CEST; 1:15pm Thursday Aussie AEST) and the men at 9:30pm PDT, and the full programme is here.

The races will be streamed on the UCI YouTube, with this stream for the women, and this one for the men, and it should be available there as well after the race is over, so if you miss the races, hit those links for the full replay.  And if you’re in the USA, it’s on Universal HD and the NBC Sports App 11PM–2AM EDT and on September 22nd on Premiere Universal HD – 6-8PM EDT.

(USA types, you may need a VPN like Hola, Tunnelbear or BetterNet, set to eg the UK, to watch the UCI stream – if you’re new to them, inrng explains VPNs here)

Lots of information on the CrossVegas website, including the course map, a Cyclocross primer and description of the main riders on the front page.  Startlists here on the UCI site (scroll down).

Follow CrossVegas on their twitter, and there’s tons on the #CrossVegas hashtag.  The hashtag for the World Cup is the un-snappy #TelenetUCICXWC.

Want a reminder of the past?  Lots of photos on the race site, and videos on their YouTube.
