Trek Bicycle, in partnership with Segafredo Zanetti, has renewed an agreement to once again host a free livestream of the Telenet UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup Waterloo on the company’s website, trekbikes.com. The event, scheduled for September 23, continues the brand’s commitment to ‘providing greater and easier access to world class racing’.
Trek adds that Waterloo’s 2018 edition of the race will feature an all-new course and two wide open fields of incredible athletes.
The broadcast is currently scheduled to begin at 13:00 US Central Time on Sunday, September 23. This is half an hour before the Elite Men’s race is set to begin at 13:30 CT. The Elite Women’s race is currently scheduled for 15:15 CT.
In addition to hosting the first (and second) World Cup to offer equal prize money to both the men’s and women’s fields, Trek has moved the women’s race to the marquee spot on the schedule allowing the men to play the role of opening act.
The race broadcast will include live commentary by broadcast veteran Steve Schlanger.
“I can’t wait to return to Waterloo for the World Cup,” Schlanger said. “As a lifelong Midwesterner, it’s terrific to see the sport at its highest level come to my part of the world. The crowds, atmosphere, and entire scene in Wisconsin should make it another incredible event. I expect fantastic competition and one of the biggest bike parties on the North American cycling calendar.”
The free trekbikes.com livestream of the 2018 Telenet UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup Waterloo will be restricted to the United States.
