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:

We’ve had two action-packed days of the 2016 Track Cycling World Championships, with so much incredible racing – and we’ve still got 3 to come! Here’s some of the videos and photos, with results and more. I’ll be putting up more of these throughout the competition. I’ll start with the full coverage from Day 1 and Day 2, and then move on to the individual women’s races. Of course, if you want more from the men’s races, the same sources have lots of things for you!
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.
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!
