Ready for RIO ?

Here are the cycling events, most will stream live on NBC Live Extra, some will be on NBCSN.

Quiz question, anyone know why the Men’s Road Race is frequently on the very first day of the Olympics, it was in London and again in RIO, there must be a reason……………..

I'm looking forward to the road race and the ITT. So yes, I'm ready.
The question is: is Rio ready?

Perhaps, because it doesn't require a venue to be completed constructed, before the event starts. : )

NOTE: I am pretty sure Sagan is participating in the Cross Country Mountain Bike race-last event on the list above-not BMX, though I would love it if he were doing both!
