It’s December, and while the road season is over, the cyclocross and track seasons are just hotting up. This weekend we’ve got great competitions in both of them, and tons and tons of live women’s cycling – here’s how to watch it.
After Round 1 in Cali, back in October, the track stars head to the New Zealand summer for round 2. We don’t get too much tv – there’s most on New Zealand’s Sky channels
and highlights in some other countries (check out the UCI’s Track World Cup TV guide) (It may turn up on streams, but I don’t know – check out the usual places for streams) but what most of us get is a show on Sunday 6th, which will be a mix of live races and highlights from the previous two days – that’s streamed on the UCI youtube channel, here:
Cambridge is in the NZDT timezone, which is GMT +13, and that video starts at 5pm NZDT & 3pm Aussie AEDT; 4am UK GMT & 05:00 European CET; 11pm North American EST & 8pm PST on Saturday 5th. But there’s an easy way to check your timezone – click through to the video, and you’ll see a count-down. (If it’s geo-restricted for you, it’s because it’s on tv in your area – there’s guidance on what to do about that in this cyclocross post). Under the YT video there’s also a handy guide to track events, if you’re new to this strand of cycling.
Now that might be disappointing if you want to watch it all live, but there are other ways to follow as the action happens.
