Default Track World Cup on BBC this weekend

Friday 17 February

1900-2000, BBC One1900-2205, BBC Red Button & BBC Sport website

Saturday 18 February

1900-2100, BBC Two1900-2140, BBC Red Button & BBC Sport website

Sunday 19 February

1445-1800, BBC Two1445-1800, BBC Red Button (rrom 1530 on Freeview) & BBC Sport website.

Does anybody know any foreign stations also showing them? Just that i dont have sky so wont be able to use the red button option. I watch loads of cycling on 19.2 - Eurosport Germany - usually, but they dont seem to be showing it.

What are the main events being shown live on BBC during these time slots?

Ive written previews for Friday and Saturday so far, that go through which events are shown each day.

Friday: http://sumofmarc.blogspot.com/2012/0...ld-cup_14.html
Saturday: http://sumofmarc.blogspot.com/2012/0...ld-cup_15.html

Theres a schedule showing the order of events on each day, but not saying which will take place during the BBC slots: http://www.londonpreparesseries.com/...-timetable.pdf

And if you live in Britain, you can watch all of the Red Button stuff online, on the BBC website

Thanks for that, good read.

Seems that the Red Button coverage is on Freeview so i should be able to see a fair bit! Looking forward to it, especially after attending the Rotterdam 6 days in Jan.

The team pursuit should be interesting although I can't see anyone beating the Aussies.

Its going to be interesting. The Brits have certainly been working hard at it, we'll find out tonight whether theyre good enough to challenge the Aussies. (Although I dont think its quite the full strength Aussie team - no Bobridge or Cam Meyer)

Think GB said they were looking to be 3:56 or 3:57, so a little disappointing.

The Aussies only just break 3'-58", so very little in it.
GB v Oz final.
NZ v.......................er Belgium for 3rd.
Russia had a mare.
The track may not be quite as fast as expected?

Bit annoying that the final isn't until Sunday. Should be good though.

Think of it this way, it allows plenty of recovery time, so theyll both be able to ride the final flat out.

Doesnt annoy me though, since Im not there on Friday, but am on Sunday!
