It’s Monday, so time for some racing videos and links from the world of women’s cycling, including road, cyclocross, track, a bit of MTB and some random stuff I’ve liked.
The first UCI race of the season has already happened, with daily streams and great coverage across social media. The results are all here, and there are photos on facebook – Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3, Stage 4 and Stage 5
It’s that time of year, where team presentation videos are popping up all over the place, so, for your delectation and delight, here are some I’ve seen – please feel free to point out any I’ve missed in the comments, or to me over on twitter. But first, before teamy things, I’m already excited about the first World Cup of the year, the Ronde van Drenthe, on 9th March 2013 – if you don’t know the race, it’s a superb Dutch Spring Classic, with a section through a building (seriously!), racing over slimy, mossy cobbled sections through forest, and about 3 times over the VAMberg, a man-made hill that used to be a municipal dump, with some great steep inclines. I love this race!!! Here’s Marianne Vos riding recon over the “new” route:
More video fun below the jump – including Emma Pooley, a brass band and a boat….
On Monday I posted a set of different videos from the week in women’s cycling – and I can’t believe I’ve got another post-full already! Videos from road team camps, the world of track, cross-country and downhill MTB and much more… as always, tell me any that I’ve missed in the comments, or on twitter. And don’t forget to #ClickThruThurs to the links, and to the video pages themselves, to show everyone how much we love women’s cycling videos!
But I’m starting with the Dutch Olympians lip-synching to Call Me Maybe, because I know you want to see Marianne Vos, Annemiek van Vleuten, Ellen van Dijk and Loes Gunnewijk do this (surrounded by lots of other Dutch sports stars from London 2012! Click through and watch!
Inspired by conversations with the lovely Ant1 on twitter tonight, here’s an additional, extra-special video post, giving a big shout-out to the teams and riders who show off their dancing skills for us! Starting with this video from the final stage of the Giro Donne 2012, with BePink and Specialized-lululemon dancing at the sign-on:
This was just one of the many dancing-BePink moments from the Giro – there were videos on their YouTube practically everyday!
