How To Watch Bike Racing During Coronavirus This Week (4/6-4/12)

null

If you're as sick of COVID-19 cancellations as we are, you're in luck, because FloBikes has a plan.

We will be hard at work resurfacing archived races and rebroadcasting them live, along with mouth watering highlights from the very best moments of the last few years.

We will be on video calls with WorldTour pros to learn how they’re weathering this strange time in sport. But more importantly, to talk about bike racing. FloBikes subscribers will hear and see cycling’s best classics riders, mountain climbers, time trialists and sprinters, breaking down the races we watched them win on FloBikes.

Our hometown hero, Lawson Craddock, will provide weekly updates, and the current kings of gravel, Colin Strickland and Payson McElveen, will offer training, technique and inspiration.

Intrigued by bikepacking? We will escape to the woods for a multi-part video series with the world’s foremost luxury cyclo-tourist and Instagram celebrity UltraRomance.

And of course, FloBikes’ weekly show, Ian & Friends, will continue as planned—airing every Wednesday afternoon. We’ll explore a different theme each week, from the cobblestone races for the hard-men of cycling, to the most iconic climbs of the grand tours and classics.

FloBikes subscribers have access to all of the upcoming coverage, as well as access to all 25 sites in the FloSports network. Check out the full schedule of FloBikes' upcoming event rebroadcasts.
