The French brought out a killer Team Sprint crew.

I am saddened by the fact that this World Cup is literally within driving distance of the USA and we are only sending 1 man and 4 women to compete.

From Los Angeles, it is:

- A 3 hour flight that costs 300USD/220EUR
- A 25 hour drive

Seriously, it will take more time and cost more money to send racers from the West Coast of the USA to Rock Hill, South Carolina for the Elite National Championships than it will to go to this World Cup!

Even if we aren't planning on doing well or sending a team to the World Championships in Cali ($600 and 8hr flight), we should still send them for the experience.

UCI Youtube channel has a placeholder with timer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8hhHIAffO8

Not sure about the quality of the track cycling footage, but have been watching the CX World Cup events in full. They are streamed live and then available to watch the entire race later.

I just noticed LOTS of team sprint relegations on the men's results. 3 in qualifying and 1 in the minor final.

Did a bit more investigating. Cyclingfans.com suggests "Only Sunday's final day (January 19) of round 3 will be streamed live, at least in part..... Sunday, January 19 starting at 5:30pm local (6:30pm U.S. Eastern or 12:30am CET). (geo-restricted)"

Some fast kilo times, top three under 1:00! Interesting splits on the winner, Sunderland. Was only 7th at 500m.
