Videos and media from the 2017 Cyclocross World Championships

I still can’t get over the amazing women’s racing from the Bieles 2017 Cyclocross World Championships!  The U23 women’s race was incredible enough, and then the Elite Women’s was just completely spectacular – one of the very, very best races I’ve ever seen in any kind of cycling, women’s or men’s.  It had everything – riding skills, drama, surprises, and a worthy winner, on a fantastic course.  I’m still getting the hairs stand up on the back of my neck, thinking of it!

If you missed any of it, here’s my collection of videos, photos and other media.  There’s a lot of it!  I’m start with the Elite women, and then move onto the U23s.  As always, if you seen anything I’ve missed, tell me in the comments, or on twitter, and I’ll edit them in.

There are lots of fantastic videos on the Cyclocross Magazine YouTube and interviews with the Canadians, on the Canadian Cyclist YouTube, from before the races and after.
