UCI World Championships

Does anyone know where we can watch this weekend? Flobikes has it blocked in the US. I thought NBC owned the rights but it is not listed in their Cycling Pass calendar.

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Is there a way for you to get the BBC stream from the UK? They are showing the men's race on Sunday.

One would need an account linked to an actual British address. They solved the VPN end-run years ago

UCI World Championships

I paid for FloSports to watch the Tour here(Canada).
I was a little ticked because I thought it would’ve been about $15 for the month, but I was charged a full year...and in Canadian so it was $200.

I’m very happy now though...I got the Tour, now I get World Championships, Giro, Vuelta...and a few others.

Both the women's and men's time trials and road races are listed on the NBC Sports app for live coverage starting this Thursday. This will be the perfect remedy for my TdF hangover

Do you have access to the BBC? The requirement may even be that you need to pay the licensing fees, although I'm not sure.

Funny enough, one could get BBC1 in Amsterdam

It and my Eurosport get billed annually. Never been an issue.

Was it only one year ago that the U23 guy was disqualified for drafting? Tempus fugit.

Is it a full schedule of events this year?

What kind of course is it this year, and what type of rider does it favour?

Only Elite events this year, no Junior or U23, although there are a couple U23 riders doing Elite. It's a super hilly course, with 2 climbs that are 6 and 11%. It could favor the punchier climbers, or some of the classics guys who can climb, a la WvA. And in what is a great turn of events, there is parity between the men and women's course. The men it's 260 km, and the women it's 160 km.
