You can watch the action unfold, as the under-23 men and women, junior men and elite men and women battle it out for the right to wear the coveted national champion’s jersey.
British Cycling took the decision to organise live video coverage of the 2018 championships after the success of live video coverage of its 2017 Criterium Championships, which it says was viewed by 110,000 people.
“The popularity of cyclocross continues to grow in Britain, and it’s fantastic that we are now able to take the discipline to an even greater audience by streaming this year’s action live,” said Jonny Clay, British Cycling’s director of cycling.
The majority of Britain’s biggest cyclocross stars will return ‘home’ to take part in the event, including Nikki Brammeier, Ian Field, Helen Wyman, Tom Pidcock and Evie Richards.
Coverage started with the under-23 women’s race at 9.30am on Sunday (January 14).
Field and Brammeier will defend the respective elite men’s and women’s titles after winning in 2017.
