MORE TELEVISION COVERAGE THAN EVER FOR CYCLING
Canada’s emerging cycling success will be on display this season thanks to unprecedented television coverage of cycling races on Sportsnet this summer.
Sportsnet will broadcast cycling races from around the world featuring Canadian cyclists, including the 2012 UCI Track Cycling World Championships, the 2012 UCI BMX World Championships, the 2012 UCI Road World Championships and the 2012 UCI Mountain Bike and Trial World Championships, as well as a large portion of the 2012 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup tour.
“This is a significant step in the right direction as we are moving ahead with our Vision 2020 plan to become a leading competitive cycling nation by 2020 and beyond. Our Canadian cyclists are enjoying international success in all disciplines, and this television coverage will put these performances at the forefront of the Canadian sports and media scene,” declared Greg Mathieu, Chief Executive Officer for the Canadian Cycling Association.
In addition to the broadcast of UCI properties, Sportsnet will carry coverage for many professional cycling races for the UCI World Tour and the UCI America Tour.
