CyclingTV did not have the U.S. broadcasting rights for the first two rounds of the UCI World Cup, and was recently issuing refunds for customers who purchased subscriptions with that in mind. Now the online station has secured the rights for the U.S. starting with Sunday’s race in Pijnacker. Tune in live to be the first to see how your Cyclocross Magazine Fantasy Team is doing. Full press release below:

As such, we strongly advise US customers interested in the UCI calendar to purchase the UCI quarterly package which will cover the rest of the ’08 calendar live, and also allows access to the highlights and ‘as live’ of races from September. Existing UCI or Gold package subscribers do not need to purchase anything new.

The UCI Cyclo-Cross World Cup on Cycling TV

The third round of the 2008 UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup sees the series return to cyclo-cross’s heartland, the year’s first visit to the Netherlands. Sven Nys won the Veldrit Pijnacker from 2004-2006, but 2007 winner Lars Boom will hope to be the victor in his home race, while wearing the rainbow jersey of the World Champion. Meanwhile, in the women’s race, Dutch rider Daphny van den Brand will be looking to reclaim the overall World Cup lead from Hanka Kupfernagel.
