Trek Bicycle has reached a broadcast agreement with Golazo Sports to stream the DVV Insurances Trophy, one of Europe’s premier cyclocross series, live on the brand’s website, trekbikes.com.

Starting on 1 November, US cyclocross fans will be able to watch the entire DVV Insurances Trophy, and select Soudal Classic races, live on trekbikes.com free of charge. The initiative, designed to provide easily accessible coverage of the sport to fans in the US, ‘underpins Trek’s deep commitment to the sport of cyclocross’.

Providing US consumers access and exposure to the fast-growing sport of cyclocross is seen as a key initiative for Trek. Currently, fans in the United States must watch the highest echelon of the sport via paid subscription services, tunnelling VPNs, or grey-market websites. To date, Trek adds that these channels have not provided a great viewing experience, and in many cases have caused American fans to risk their digital security in order to enjoy a race.

‘Watching for free via trekbikes.com provides an easy, reliable method for all to enjoy world-class cyclocross from the convenience of their computer, phone, or tablet.’

Trek has previously live-streamed its annual backyard UCI cross race, the Trek CXC Cup, providing an opportunity for a worldwide audience to watch stars such as Katie Compton, World Champion Wout van Aert, and the Telenet-Fidea team, along with a field of world-class talent.

The free stream of European cyclocross racing is available to US viewers on trekbikes.com. CX fans can simply visit the Trek Bikes website to watch the action live. The complete streaming schedule that will appear on trekbikes.com can be found below.
