We’re eventually going to see all the Olympic bike races put up on the Olympics Youtube, but until then, here’s what we can watch from the Rio 2016 women’s cycling – road race, ITT, track, BMX and MTB, with various other bits and pieces I’ve found.
If you want to compare and contrast what happened in Rio with previous Olympics, head to the Olympic Channel, where you can search by sport, and under the Rio 2016 videos, you’ll find highlights from previous years too.
A lot of the Olympic media is geo-restricted to countries (INRNG tells you more about restrictions, and how to see things despite them), so if there’s more you want to see, do try searching with your country’s broadcaster – I’ve added the BBC links because I can see them all from the UK, but hopefully you can find them in your country too. If there’s anything you especially enjoyed, please do tell me, and I’ll edit it in.
We kicked off with the Road Race, which was dramatic, in so many different ways – Dan and I talked about it in our post-race podcast. Highlights on the Olympic Channel, and on the Olympic YT:
Anna van der Breggen talks about it in this InCycle TV interview:
Full results, and more Road race media:
All the results are on Tissot, and if you want to see videos from the men’s races, check out the UCI’s and British Cycling’s youtubes. Here’s the UCI’s combined live racing from the final session, with highlights from previous races
On Day 1 we had the women’s Team Pursuit, Team Sprint and Scratch race. Here’s the British Cycling highlights video
BBC Sport’s Day 1 video clip; Race reports & photos from the morning and evening sessions on Track Cycling; Race report and photos from British Cycling; Race report and photo gallery from Cycling Australia; Photos on Cyclingnews.
It was a really full weekend, with the second Track World Cup to take place in Guadalajara this year (this one launched the 2014/15 season), and the European Cyclocross World Champs – and we have video!
A bit of video here:
and a photo slideshow of the u23 race:
and there are lots of photos – I always love Bálint Hamvas’ photos on Cyclephotos.co.uk – and there’s a photo album from all the races on the European Cycling Union website. Full results here.
It’s been a a great couple of days from the Track World Champs in Cali, with all kinds of action – and it’s been strangely affected by the weather. Track riders are usually in these very tightly controlled environments, with perfect heat and humidity, but the Cali velodrome has a roof, but no walls, so there have been issues with wind that riders will never usually have to deal with.
I’ve got a collection of videos and links from the women’s scratch race, team sprint, team pursuit and 500m – and remember, if you want to watch the next three days live, here’s my guide.
I’m starting with my favourite race so far, and the first medal race of Worlds, the women’s scratch:
This weekend was the first round in the 2013-14 Track World Cup, in Manchester, with the usual huge crowds and amazing riding. I’ve got a collection of all the videos I’ve found so far, and I’ll add more in as I see them – I’m starting with the highlights reel from each day, then there’s a bit of a commentary about some issues there have been with the coverage, and then there’ll be the other videos….
As always, there are a ton of videos from the 2013 Track World Championships on the UCI Youtube channel, but here are the major women’s videos from Day 2.
First, a set of videos from the Team Pursuit. Canada v Poland for bronze and Australia v Great Britain for gold:
