Omloop and TdS are alright,
They have been relegated for the 2023 season but will be able to get it back (in 2024) if they provide evidence they've made an effort to get live coverage next year for all the stages.Omloop and TdS are alright,
and it's okay that TDU gets its ranking back.I forgot it never actually held WWT status, but I still think it's fine if they get it. But the almost non-existing ProSeries would look a lot worse with these changes, and there might be too many WWT races as well in this scenario.
UAE Tour was probably always unavoidable, but if it's in February then at least there aren't a lot of other road races around that time.
If it's true that Ride London has a deal with BBC for next year, then I doubt they'll be relegated.
the problem is the definition of live coverage is increasingly flexible, Im sure the Beeb deal would only have been for their Red Button coverage where they chuck alot of live sport coverage, so its technically there, but its not on like BBC1/BBC2 main channels live for 3 stages.They have been relegated for the 2023 season but will be able to get it back (in 2024) if they provide evidence they've made an effort to get live coverage next year for all the stages.
I'm going to need to re-structure a spreadsheet I've been working on...
thats not strictly true the Tour de Yorkshire,when it existed, and Tour of Britain have had live free broadcasting coverage, the mens Ride London race also had live coverage too.And if they cannot claim that it is a top division race, getting live coverage on their free to air main broadcast channels is an even bigger ask.
Outside of the Tour de France and the World Championships, no race has live free broadcasting in the UK: are they really making it a requirement that a 2.Pro women's race secures that to be able to regain WWT status?
They've probably thought about it, but it's not cost effective for the tv licence fee or something like that. They have done it in the past for the Olympics though when the bbc had the main rights to it for at least London and Rio. Having it on the red button service would be fine in my opinion as I think most if not all TV sets have a remote with a red button which means its more than a step ahead of any streaming platform like gcn or even just the basic Eurosport channels as I'm notnsure whether they're available on the likes of Freeview and Freesat.Why in this digital channel era they never just created a BBC Sports channel and just put sports there I dont know, but as I say alot of the live sport they claim to show live these days is shuffled over to the Red Button channel, or iplayer online, though its infrequently advertised
Yet they didn't run in 2020. The Giro d'Italia did, scrambling together a race on short notice (and it showed) and got penalised with loss of their WWT status. Yet everybody was calling out to protect the Women's Tour when they failed their responsibilities over a year later.i suspect the womens tour played the showed "efforts" card last year, they were signed up with GCN/Eurosport for live coverage and had announced it, similar to this years efforts, but had to can it at the last minute due to the costs and lack of consistent 4g signal on the route, and probably claimed it was an exceptional year due to covid, just to get a race run at all was probably an achievement.
WUTKoppenberg and Rooijakkers (did you know Dani Rowe used to ride with her?) are already on the attack. And Brand is joining them now.
Rooijakkers got 3 seconds, Koppenburg 2 and Brand 1 in the first intermediate sprint.
