World Championships 2016: 9th - 16th October

My TV (at least) says it will be streaming the womens TTT in about 30 mins from now.

Not sure what geo restrictions are in place, but suspect that the mens TTT will be on TV rather than Youtube in the first instance as the UCI tend to use Youtube as a free backup when local TV stations are not broadcasting individual events.

eurosport have ttt coverage scheduled from 12 to 3 today, which looking ahead to next saturday and sunday, this seems to be more than they have the road races because of superbikes and english open (tennis?) Sad

i think of the womens road race, there is from 1pm to 2:30 next saturday but i can only see highights on sunday of the men.

looking at eurosport website, this is the live for the week (estimated times due to their schedule on webstie)

TTT - sunday 9th 12 - 3
monday 10th - 9 - 2 (says under 23 TTs)
tuesday 11th - 11 - 3 (says men's and women's TTT. they know as much going on as their commentators). this should be womens elite i think.
wednesday 12th - 11:30 - 2:15 men's elite
thursday 13th - they have under 23 road highlights at 5:30 - 6:30. mens.
saturday 15th - 1 - 2:30 womens elite
sunday 16th - earliest highlights is 5:15 - 7pm I think.

Think the English Open is snooker, Nolte.

Because of the lack of  enthusiasm for FPs recently, I'm minded not to include the minor races (unless I get some fantastic last-minute enthusiasm).  The FP thread for the TTTs is up and running - still a few minutes to pick for the women!
Nolte

snooker does make sense, thanks Smile
maybe eurosport will occupy carlton kirby at the snooker

RaboLiv have lost their no 4 rider due to something like heat stroke. Cycled into barrier in an unforced error and unable to stand back up Shocked Looks like she will be OK.

The whole thing is a farce, IMO..  Far too hot for the riders, collapsing and fainting in the hear.  Far too hot for spectators.  Flat as a pancake.  As Mr S would say 'It's all money' !

Well who would put a major sporting world championship on in the desert?  Is this McQuaid or the new guy who was supposed to clean up cycling?

McQuaid.

It was chosen in 2012, cookson was elected in 2013

Thanks Nolte ... that figures!! Follow the money!

Imagine what the World Cup is going to be like!
gerry12ie

I know Huw has already taken note of Eddie Dunbar, but his 9th in the U23 ITT underlines his serious potential.  He climbs like a demon, and has real GT possibilities in a couple of years.  Definitely one to watch closely...

Mullen leading at Intermediate 2.

Looks almost other worldly, watching  them cycle through the grey and yellow sand.
Alongside there are works digging an extra motorway out of the ground, no doubt for the future World Cup.
mazda

Nobody getting close to Mullen yet.
All the superstars are just setting off though ...

Martin and Kiryienka #1 and #2 at first intermediate.
I missed Dumoulin.
Will go see what he did.

Kiri slipping back.
All going one way now.

looking at a little of the women's race, 2 US women going back for bottles at the same time. they are speculating it might be all amber neben will do today, go back for bottles and bring them up, go back again, bring them up.

though i am thinking it might be a problem for the smaller teams, keeping hydrated tomorrow as they don't have the same number of riders to sacrifice in collecting bottles

hopefully this will be over by half 2. need to go at 40km/h for that to happen.
Nolte

Good win for diercksen

The Scandinavians have done well so far this week
Nolte

bbc are optimistic that some racing might start in 6k or so
Nolte

splits appearing now as peoton move at 69km/h. 180km to go
Nolte

ewan dropped, stannard out of position and tom dumoulin had a puncture at the very bad time as the pace went up,



bennett in the lead group
Nolte

1:15 between group 1 and group 2. belgians going hard.

bad crash for durbridge and mezgec (i don't know mezgec looks like he broke his leg as he crawled). Durbridge seemed to have stopped or was stopping and gaviria hit him.

gaviria stopped on the side of the road now
Nolte

the colombian in the break blown off his bike, there seems to be a wind storm ahead.
maffy

g2 will get back on the circuits, so double unfortunate for gaviria and mezgec.

should have spun up bonnet, w Smile

It's looking more interesting than I expected, but I have a pass to go cycling and having missed out last two weekends due to holidays I take my chance . . .
kathy

Still over a minute to the second group - the Germans can't be happy!  Looks like Bouhanni has won the French argument.
Nolte

it has gone out to 1:26 for the second group, though not particularly working hard as the moroccan from the early break is still in the lead group. what riders have been attacking from the second group, belgium stays on the wheels of them kind of like valverde on that stage in the vuelta this year
kathy

Bad tactics by team GB.

Yes, they just burnt themselves out by working too hard before they got to the desert but the strong riders they lost like Thomas, Rowe and standard, that was just bad tactics though they still have Cavendish and Blythe up there
gerry12ie

Nice tense dynamic in that front group.  Someone will have to make a break for it at some stage - Terpstra?
Nolte

Maybe terpstra, van avermaet, bennati and boassen Hagen  for an attack.
Biosphere

Back for last lap. Surprised that Cavendish got back on the lead group. Greipel's expression says a lot as he crosses the line.
Biosphere

Having watched a replay not sure what Cavendish is upset about?
gerry12ie

What a rider Sagan is!  He was an outstanding champion last year and his reign of terror continues Very Happy

Cavendish made a sack of it, plain and simple so should just get over it.  He and Blythe spent enough time covered up in the latter stages to get the plan right, so he can't really complain too much.

Delighted to see old man river take a bronze as well.  Not a bad year all told for him and Fab Can.  

What an amount of work Styven and Bennati did, too.  In that heat it was some shift to put in.

Sagan is a monster though, and we can only look forward to him wearing the stripes like a genuine champion again next year

I think his upset was with himself because what he did first on crossing line was congratulate Sagan then vent his frustration.
Boogerd_Fan

beautiful, fantastic, patient and measured performance from Peter.
Great way to end the year and prove those folks who thought this course to be too much for the pure sprinters. Chapeau
Nolte

Chapeau to sagan

Though a lot has to said about belgium, Italy and Norway's strategies. They were the 3 biggest teams in the group and their reward was just a bronze medal

Only one that tried a late attack was Netherlands with leezer and terpstra.

They had good sprinters  for the final but against Sagan and Cavendish, they should have maybe tried something.
Bartali

I couldn't understand why Belgium took Sagan and Cavendish to the line.  You could run that sprint 100 times and Boonen would never win it!! Bonkers!
gerry12ie

Yes, it seemed a bit daft alright but the commentators on the UCI channel (Hayles and McCrossan I think) made the point that everyone in the lead group was simply too shagged to make any kind of move.  Belgium put in a huge amount of work alright, as did the Italians, firstly to establish the gap and then to maybe try and ditch a few out of the lead group.  I don't think there could have been any other outcome really, the conditions ruled out any attacks - other than the two very late Dutch attacks.
mazda

I think it's ok saying after the event that Sagan and Cav were the strongest, but would it have been any kind of surprise if Kristoff or Viviani or GVA had been the strongest at the end ?
Ok, maybe not Viviani, but still, I don't see that it was a foregone conclusion.

I don't disagree with any of that .... but it was never going to be Boonen in that company!!!
Nolte

Bonnen looked despondent on the podium (compare to Paris Roubaix, he looked happy despite second)  and I think from this reaction, maybe boonen realised too late the strategy of waiting for the sprint wasn't the best one.

Though then again the group was a fair sized group and both Cavendish and Sagan still had someone to work for them.
