Olympic videos – Rio 2016

Screen Shot 2016-08-06 at 22.09.44

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.

Podcast 2015 Episode 20 – Summer Classic

Podcast logoIt’s a bit of a hectic podcast this week as there was only one short window where Sarah and Dan could coordinate their schedules to record. On the upside, it’s a bit of  a hectic podcast this week! Anyway, it was cobbly and rainy in France, which kind of makes La Course a summer classic, right? In addition to recapping the multiple attacks, crashes and attempts in Paris, we also discuss the BMX World Championships and the Para-Cycling World Cup. Enjoy! (58:38 MIN / 56.3 MB)

We didn’t talk about it, but we loved this video from Nettie Edmondson
