Hey guys I am new to cyclocross (and this forum). I have watched a couple of cyclocross world championships, and it seems like an utterly awesome sport. My question is therefore: are there any international sports channels (like Eurosport Player or something similar), that broadcast cyclocross? :) I live in Denmark, so Sporza is probably not an option.
 
Try GCN Racing on YouTube and see if it is available in Denmark.

They broadcast all the men's and women's race from the Superprestige, the RectaVit Series and the Ethias Cross.

For the World Cups, you have Eurosport Player or if you want a better coverage install a VPN and see from the UCI YouTube channel.

For the DVV Trofee, I can't recall if it was broadcasted live on GCN last year. But all the DVV races are broadcasted on Sporza and I got the habit of using a Belgian VPN to watch them from there.

Like Ricco said, GCN does a lot of races. I can't watch them in Belgium (due to copyrights in Belgium being owned by Telenet who are putting a lot of races behind a pay wall). I have noticed that you can watch them with a German located VPN, so it's very likely you'll be able to watch from Denmark even without using a VPN.

As for Sporza, if you know somebody who lives in Belgium and has a Belgian phone nr, you can ask them to create a free VRTnu account. You need to register with a local phone nr, to prove you live in Belgium. But once the account is created, you can watch VRT (including Sporza) channels in the EU with VRTnu.

This is also an interesting site, which lists all the races and where you can find a (legal) live stream for it: http://www.cyclingfans.com/cyclocross/live

Is it really needed? I have a VRTnu account without having a Belgian phone number. I have my login associated with my Facebook account and I just need to turn on Hola with the Belgian VPN to start loading the video player. Once it gets going I can turn off the VPN and connect with my usual network.

Yes, it's needed. You probably registered your account back in the early days. At first you could just make a bogus account with fake info. Then, you were asked an address (but you could still just make one up, as long as it was a real place). Now you need to have a verifiable piece of info, to confirm you are from Belgium. It's possible you can chose a different option than a phonenumber, but the days that you could just claim to be a Belgian citizen "scouts honor" are over. Once you have registered your account, you don't need a VPN as long as you are in the EU.

Hey, only just saw this post. TV2 Sport/Play sends some races live.
