There were a whole load of races this weekend – here’s some video from road racing in Europe and MTB in the Czech Republic – and hopefully someone will find the video of the amazing racing in the USA!
On Friday, it was the Boels Rentals Hills Classic, aka Holland Hills – all around the hills of the Valkenberg region, including the Cauberg. This one is a hard race – last year Marianne Vos broke her collarbone in a fall here.
Thanks to everyone who gives us links – especially Bassface!

Last week’s racing:
Post-prologue video interviews (in English) with Annemiek van Vleuten, with Nettie Edmondson and with Christine Majerus
2 videos from the women’s Tour of Flanders – the 3rd round of the women’s Road World Cup – and I’ll add more in as I see them later.
Firstly, 7.5 minutes highlights on Sporza, in Dutch – please click through and show Sporza we love seeing women’s cycling.
Next, 3.5 minutes in English, on the UCI youtube (there’ll be 15 minutes more in a few weeks’ time):
EDIT AGAIN! And here’s the video with 12 mins each from Flanders and Flèche Wallonne, narrated by David Harmon, in English:
The NOS video on this page may be geo-restricted to the Netherlands – this post-race interview with Vos isn’t, but it’s in Dutch. There are studio interviews in Dutch too, with Vos, Van Dijk and Johansson on Sporza.
I love this photo of the finish-line (so much passion!) and there will be photos on the womenscycling.net race report, and on Cyclingnews.
EDIT! I’ve written a race report for Total Women’s Cycling, and would love it if you clicked through and read it!
Here are the full results – come back later for more!
Having a fortnight between the Ronde van Drenthe and the Trofeo Alfredo Binda gave the women’s peloton some time to get training – so there’s been a flurry of videos from team camps. In alphabetical order, we’ll start with Argos Shimano, with Lucy Garner, Kirsten Wild and Esra Tromp talking about training (and doesn’t this make you want to get on your bike?)
Videos from the last three days of the 2013 Track World Championships – the women’s sprint, keirin, omnium and points race. There are a lot more on the UCI’s youtube channel – and all the results are
Here’s my favourite event of the meet – the omnium elimination race:
and here are all the other videos from the omnium
As always, there are a ton of videos from the 2013 Track World Championships on the UCI Youtube channel, but here are the major women’s videos from Day 2.
First, a set of videos from the Team Pursuit. Canada v Poland for bronze and Australia v Great Britain for gold:

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):
LOTS more below!
