This year’s Australian Road Racing started with a bang on New Year’s Day with the Bay Crits and their Summer of Cycling continues with the National Road Cycling Championships. We can watch the road races, and I’ll tell you how to follow the other races live – but forgive me if the information’s complicated, it’s timezones!
We’re in Ballarat as usual, and the schedule, with links to the courses, startlists and so much more, is here,. Ballarat is in Victoria, and in the AEDT timezone, so 10 hours ahead of European CET, 11 hours ahead of UK GMT, and 16 hours ahead of North American EST, so double check dates if you’re not in Aus.
- Criterium Championships, Wednesday 6th, (it’s a hilly course with some nasty corners, so this is for the TOUGH Crit riders) – the women start at 5:30pm AEDT (07:30 CET, 6:30am GMT, 1:30am EST). Live results as they happen, and there will be highlights on the Nine Network and FOXSPORTS at some time. Find out about the top crit riders with the videos and media from the Bay Crits.
- Individual Time Trials, Thursday 7th – the u23 and elite women start at 12:30pm AEDT (02:30 CET, 1:30am GMT, 8:30pm Wednesday EST). Startlists with timings and live results as they happen.
- Elite Road Races, Sunday 10th – the women start at 08:00 AEDT (Saturday at 22:00 CET, 9:00pm GMT, 4:00pm EST). Startlist and live results as they happen.
