This weekend’s LIVE women’s racing – Glencoe Grand Prix, Winston-Salem Classic Crit & Road Race, and the Albstadt MTB World Cup

It’s lovely, this time of year, with so much live women’s cycling, and this weekend we have FOUR live women’s races – a crit, a road race, and a cross country MTB World Cup.  And this is how we can watch them….

USA Crits #2, Glencoe Grand Prix, 30th May

The cycling scene in the USA is well known for innovative live streaming, and one of the conditions of joining the USA Crits series is broadcasting the race on the internet.  The women start at 4:15pm N American CDT (5:15pm EST, 10:15pm UK BST, 23:15 Euro CEST, 7:15 am Monday Aus AEST), but there are tons more races featured on the livestream, including men’s Cat 2/3 and elite, AND women’s CAT 3/4 – the stream’s over here, there’s more information, including the schedule, on the race website, and here’s how to watch the rest of the USA Crits.

After a couple of slow weeks, it’s back to full tilt with the Boels Rentals Hills Classic, Gooik, Philadelphia, the Marianne Vos Classic, Edinburgh’s round of the Tour Series, Grand Prix de Plumelec and lots more. There’s also a bunch of great blogs, videos, podcasts and stuff too. Even with all of that going on there’s time for Sarah to prove that she knows US geography like (literally) nobody else! Somehow we manage to keep it under an hour without skimping on the laughs, the bickering or the swearing so strap on your headphones and enjoy!
