This year’s Road Cycling National Champs weekend were the usual mix of predictable and completely un-guessable, which I love. Check out the race report collection on Ella Cycling Tips – and here’s a little collection of videos and results – and of course, if you have more that I’ve missed, please do let me know, either in the comments or on twitter, and I’ll edit them in. In alphabetical order…
Video highlights on Sporza – and this made me grin:
Little video interview with winner Kaat Hannes, after the race. Race report on Lensworld-Zannata’s website, and full results from the Road Race and ITT.
The Road Race was won by Annie Foreman-Mackey
Video interviews with second-placed Joëlle Numainville, and Leah Kirchmann in third. Elite women’s results and U23 and Junior women.
In the ITT, it was Foreman-Mackey’s The Cyclery-Opus team-mate Tara Whitten, back from really nasty head and neck injuries:
Full results from the elite women, and the U23 and junior women’s ITTs.
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….
I am really, REALLY liking the UCI’s video coverage of the Track World Champs – just as good as the CX World Champs was. It’s impressive! There are LOADS of videos from Day 1 – here are some of them, with no spoilers!
Individual Pursuit final – Sarah Hammer (USA) v Amy Cure (Aus):
