August 28th, 2019 by | Posted in MTB, News | Tags: , , , ,

The whole season has built up to this week, when UCI Mountain Bike World Championships return to Mont-Sainte-Anne, Que. How can you make sure you don’t miss a single second of racing?

Well, the best way to watch is to be there, course side at Mont-Sainte-Anne to catch all the action live!

Barring that, there’s a few options to follow racing this year. The UCI’s YouTube channel will have the most coverage, both live and on demand. This may include the under-23 cross country racing.

If you just want to watch the elites, you have a few choices. Red Bull TV continues its season-long coverage of both downhill and cross country races*. For Mont-Sainte-Anne, CBC will be streaming live on www.watch.cbc.ca for Saturday and Sunday’s finals. TVA Sports will also be providing live coverage and replays. The full TVA Sports broadcast schedule is listed at the bottom of the page.

For the races that won’t be broadcast live, you can follow along with UCI’s live timing and results.

Canadian Cycling Magazine and Canadian MTB will be on the ground providing all the updates we can on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, starting with Thursday’s junior XCO racing.

*If you’re reading from outside Canada, there are certain countries that Red Bull TV will not be broadcasting live to. These include the UK, New Zealand and the U.S. For American fans, you can watch with a subscription to NBC Gold.
