The International Cycling Union (UCI) is pleased to announce that, for the first time, it will provide free, live broadcasts of the Cyclo-cross World Championships on its YouTube channel. The World Championships will be held on 2-3 February in Louisville, USA.
The UCI channel will then proceed to provide live coverage of World Championships and World Cup events in the Road, Track, BMX and Cyclo-cross disciplines. Mountain Bike and Trials will also be live, with the outlet announced shortly.
The UCI’s live broadcasts will be available all around the world with the exception of those countries in which TV channels already offer the option to view the UCI events live. This new video coverage means that a passion for cycling can be spread to countries that have never before enjoyed such coverage, over all five continents.
The UCI channel will also provide highlights during the live coverage, offering freeze-frame images of the most spectacular action and most skilled performers. These highlights will be accessible to all Internet users, free of charge and without restriction on location.
The UCI channel is available at www.youtube.com/ucichannel
