It’s a huge weekend of women’s racing – with the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race in Australia, and the 2017 Cyclocross World Championships in Luxembourg, both on Saturday 28th January – and I’m here to tell you how to watch them both, LIVE!
It’s a 113km lap race, and the women start at 11:45am AEDT, which is 00:45 UK GMT/ 01:45 European CET and for North America, it’s on Friday 27th January at 7:45pm EST, and 4:45pm PDT.
The whole thing will be broadcast live, on Channel 7 in Australia – if you want streams, I think the Aussie livestream is here (you may need a VPN to get in) and there should be streams on Cyclingfans.
If you can’t watch live, the hashtag is #DeakinWomensRace, the race twitter is @CadelRoadRace, and I always follow Jessi Braverman, Kirsty Baxter and the Summer of Cycling twitter accounts for anything Aussie racing.
This is going to be a super-exciting race – and on Saturday 28th January, we can watch BOTH the women’s U23 and women’s Elite races live, on the UCI YouTube and elsewhere – for example, if you’re in Belgium you can watch Sporza on tv or the internet, or NBC Sports in the USA.
The women’s U23 race starts at 13:00 European CET (12pm UK GMT/ 7am USA EST / 11pm Aussie AEST) and the elite women’s race starts at 15:00 CET (2pm GMT/ 9am EST/ 1am AEST).
I’ll put videos of the races up here, after the weekend – and of course, if you see things to share, please do let me know on twitter.
