Cycling Event – And Richmond – Will Fill The Airwaves

By Boomer Staff | November 13th, 2014

Look for the 2015 UCI Road World Championships, being held in September in Richmond, to receive unprecedented television coverage.

The UCI Road World Championships, cycling’s premier event, are returning to the U.S. for the first time in nearly three decades, and television networks are giving it 64 hours of original programming.

Universal Sports Network, partly owned by NBC, will televise the event across several networks during its Sept. 19-27 run. The final day will air live on NBC and CNBC.

Including returns, the Richmond event will be on the air for about 91 hours. Richmond 2015, the race organizers, will also stream all the races on a free mobile app it will offer next year.
