So much action in the 2016 Track Cycling Worlds! I put up links and videos from the first two days (and was slightly scuppered when British Cycling took down all their content…) but there was tons more racing – here’s what I found from the later races.
Hi team! Even though Sarah’s been unwell this week she’s managed to return from the dead just to help catch you up on all the racing that’s been going on this week. We review the Omloops from last weekend, Le Samyn des Dames mid-week and the first two days of the Track World Championships (which have involved the presence of the Drama Llama). We also talk about a bunch of pro kits available for purchase and some really cool videos and articles from the week including several that focus on riders from ethnically diverse backgrounds, which is fantastic. As always there’s heaps to get through, so enjoy! (1:11:30 MIN / 65.4 MB)

This week’s racing
We’ve had two action-packed days of the 2016 Track Cycling World Championships, with so much incredible racing – and we’ve still got 3 to come! Here’s some of the videos and photos, with results and more. I’ll be putting up more of these throughout the competition. I’ll start with the full coverage from Day 1 and Day 2, and then move on to the individual women’s races. Of course, if you want more from the men’s races, the same sources have lots of things for you!
It’s time for the 2016 Track Cycling World Championships, this time in London. Track Worlds are always so exciting, but this year, with the Rio Olympics just around the corner, there’s even more to ride for, with qualification points, and the battle for team spots all up for grabs. And we can watch a lot of it live, and follow the rest. But let’s start with a little video about the sport from the Olympic Games:
There will be daily streams on UCI YouTube – timings are in UK GMT (Euro CET -1 hour; Australian AEDT -11; USA EST +5 – so when evening sessions start at 7pm GMT, that’s 20:00 CET, 6am AEDT and 2pm EST)
- Day 1, Wednesday 2nd March, 7pm GMT (inc women’s Individual Pursuit, men’s Scratch & women’s & men’s Team Sprint finals)
- Day 2, Thursday 3rd March, 7pm GMT (inc women’s Keirin and Scratch, and men’s team pursuit finals)
- Day 3, Friday 4th March, 7pm GMT (inc women’s Team Pursuit, men’s IP, Omnium Elimination and Points finals)
- Day 4, Saturday 5th March, 5:30pm GMT (I assume this starts with some replays, as the live racing starts at 7pm, and includes women’s Points and Omnium elimination, and men’s Sprint and Omnium Points finals)
- Day 5, Sunday 6th March, 2pm GMT (inc women’s Sprint and Omnium Points, and men’s Keirin and Madison finals) (Starts on Eurosport from 10am, so there may be streams)
Here’s the full competition programme, also in GMT. The UCI TV schedule with all the broadcasters is on their Track Worlds Portal. For UK viewers, British Cycling’s tv guide (The BBC programmes will also be streamed on the BBC website – I’d go to their cycling portal to find the daily streams) and for Aussies, Cycling Australia’s TV guide. The Belgian Cycling Fed is putting up daily guides to watching on Sporza.
