    No coverage of the U-23 race????

    the BBC is absolutely rubbish with its quality of coverage (exception being chris boardman who is very good). UC-bloody-I should have given it to Eurosport. At least those who go to work would get highlights and loads of other stuff to watch in the evening as well as decent coverage and commentary and not another few hours of Hugh Porter

  • Ken Evans

    It is worth searching on the Internet for live video coverage too. (But the commentary might not be in English.)


    It’s on the BBC red button tomorrow 12:15 and then goes to BBC2

  • Katie

    BBC red button service are showing all the races.

    Does anyone know why the World Championships are not apparently being shown on Eurosport? All I can find is some coverage on BBC2
