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.

Mostly I’ve been watching the mid-winter cyclocross – so many great races and fun things, and I’ve been collecting links to videos, photos and other CX miscellany in this post (I especially love Balínt Hamvas’ race photos) as well as how to watch this week’s races – but these are some other things I’ve liked recently. If there’s anything you’ve seen that I’ve missed, please please add that to the comments, or let me know on twitter.
