2016 Track World Championships – vidos, media and more from Days 3-5

 

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.

Podcast 2015 Episode 29 – Worlds Apart

Podcast logoG’day team, first of all, apologies for the delay in getting this episode out to you. We had major technical difficulties with our server during the week and it took a little while to fix. (For those who may be interested I’ll explain a little more at the bottom of the post). Anyway, we’re up and running now, and it’s a good thing too because what an amazing week of cycling last week was!

Richmond Virginia proved to be an excellent host for worlds and continuing on from last week’s time trials, this week brought us the Junior and Elite Women’s Road Races which proved to be incredibly exciting. We also discuss some controversy with Linda Villumsen and a recap of some other racing that happened in various disciplines. Enjoy! (1:10:15 MIN / 67.44 MB)

Videos & more from the 2015 Junior Road Race World Championships

Just as with the Junior women’s ITT World Championships, there’s no UCI video of the junior races at all.  Yeah, it makes me angry, and yeah, I’m pissed off for the riders themselves, but what can we do?  Well, luckily for us, some lovely people were tweeting snippets from around the course, and we have some interviews with riders below as well, along with photos, results and more.

Podcast 2015 Episode 28 – TTTEWITT

The-Unofficial,-Unsanctioned-Women's-UCI-Cycling-ShowHi team, so far at worlds in Richmond it’s been Time Trials. Team ones, Junior Women’s ones, Elite Women’s ones, trying to un-geoblock UCI video ones. So we talk about all that and a bunch of other hilarity as well (this may be a code for Dan swears a lot as we discuss socks in Vegas and all the ways in which they just don’t work)! Anyway, it’s a great episode with lots of things to be excited about and celebrate. (1:15:22 MIN / 72.37 MB)

Videos & more from the 2015 Junior World ITT Championships

After the excitement of the Richmond 2015 Team Time Trial, we’ve had our first look at the Individual Time Trial course, and our first medals for riders in national teams, as the Junior women raced their ITT.

Usually at this point I’d add in the UCI’s highlights videos from the Junior ITT, but this year, unlike 2014 and 2013, this year they’ve decided not to make highlights.

It’s interesting, because there was no live broadcast in 2013 either, but they managed finish-line shots plus interviews, which is bare minimum to me, and so simple even I could do it.  I’m truly gutted for all these young riders who worked SO hard, and there’s no video record to show their friends, families, sponsors, future teams…  or to watch themselves to see how they can improve.  It’s 2015!  This is not difficult!  I hope they sort this out for Friday’s road race.

Luckily, there are a couple of mini-videos around, and photos and race reports as well.  And if you find anything, tell me and I’ll edit it in.
