Damn, I was hoping to finish painting the bikeshed before Winter arrived! Enjoy the Cyclocross!

Bad BBC! Their olympic schedules are useless, so I’d missed the Men’s road race by the time I found the right page on their website.

The Women’s road race is 0700-1030 BST tomorrow (Sun 10 August), with the time trials on Wednesday 13 August 0430-1010 BST.

BMX fans (any reading this? I’ve yet to find any) can see the finals up to 0418 BST on Thursday 21 August, while mountain bikes run 0800-1030 BST on Friday 22 (Women) and Saturday 23 (Men).

Events are shown on Eurosport (19e), ARD/ZDF (19e), RTBF-Sat (19e), La 2 (5w), SLO-2 (13e), RAI Due and RAI Sport (13e) and maybe others, but most broadcasters don’t make it easy to find which events are on which channels when (see above flame of the BBC), so good luck!

Update: highlights of Men’s Road Race at 2300 CET tonight (Saturday) on Eurosport (19e).


Cyclocross: Hoogerheide and Treviso-Veneto

Filed under: Coverage,Cyclocross,Eurosport — MJ Ray @ 12:20+00:00

Just a quick post about the final cyclocross races: highlights from Hoogerheide are on RAI Sport Sat (free-to-air 13e) at 2255 CET tonight (Thu 24 Jan).

Highlights of this weekend’s Treviso-Veneto races (26 and 27 Jan) should be on Eurosport (free-to-air at 19 east), 0900-1000 CET Mon 28 Jan. If you know of other broadcasters showing the race, please leave me a comment.

Sven Nys has this pretty tied up, no?


Cyclocross: Hofstade

Filed under: Coverage,Cyclocross — MJ Ray @ 01:13+00:00

Hope you had a good Christmas Day if you celebrate it. The cycling starts again already: RAI Sport Sat (free-to-air 13e) have highlights of today’s seventh Cyclocross World Cup event from Hofstade Belgium at 22:30 CET today (Wednesday). No idea whether it will be repeated… my recent predictions seem to have been a bit wrong.

Hofstade is the sixth elite men’s event to actually happen, after the cancellation of their race at the Milan round. Sven Nys of Belgium leads the elite men’s rankings by almost 500 points from compatriots Bart Wellens and Klaas Vantornout. Daphny van den Brand of the Netherlands leads the elite women by 340 points from USA’s Katherine Compton. 300 points for a win, then 260, 220, 190, 170, and so on. The contests aren’t over yet.

Update: It’s on again 22:30 CET today (Thursday) and repeated at 11:10 tomorrow (Friday) according to teletext.


Cyclocross: Koksijde

Filed under: Coverage,Cyclocross — MJ Ray @ 07:03+00:00

RAI Sport Sat (free-to-air 13e) have highlights of today’s fourth cyclocross World Cup event at Koksijde at 21:45 CET today (Saturday). I’d expect it to be repeated later in the week, maybe Tuesday again.


Cyclocross: Pijnacker

Filed under: Coverage,Cyclocross — MJ Ray @ 01:09+00:00

After the comments on a recent post, at least one reader should be happy that RAI Sport Sat (free-to-air 13e) have a quarter-hour show of last weekend’s third cyclocross World Cup event at Pijnacker from 18:40-18:55 CET today (Tuesday).


Cyclocross: Tabor

RAI Sport Sat (free-to-air 13e) have highlights of the second cyclocross World Cup event in Tabor, Czech Republic at 23:00 CET today. More introduction to cycling’s winter cousin on
