Olympic cycling schedule 2021

I thought at first to make this thread with a schedule of all the events or starting guns but the sheer number of track events made it seem like a tedious project so I'm going by category. Maybe I'll come back later and sort by day?

See next post for calendar

On the men's side Remco isn't gassed, Primosz is banged up but not gassed, and let's be real, Pogacar broke a sweat no more than 4 times the entire TdF (3 wins and one double Ventoux stage). Plus if anyone is trending up since the Tour, it's WvA, who came in undercooked due to appendix surgery and is gaining steam -- to put it mildly. So 2 Slovenians and 2 Belgians that will be among the favorites. Other picks with a decent chance: Woods if those extra days from leaving the Tour early helped, Dani Martinez unsurprisingly looked terrific for Bernal at the Giro, Simon Yates had a bad first week at the cold and wet Giro but came to life when it warmed up.

Then on the women's side, no one from SD Worx will be tired since they spread the load by taking turns bossing the last major race, the Giro (that and nearly all other major races). And van Vleuten opted to skip it to target Tokyo. The Dutch are huge favorites, and I don't think it's even close. Of course anything can happen but it'll be a huge upset if the Killer V's of van der Breggen, van Vleuten, Vos, and Vollering don't bring gold back to the Netherlands. I would love it if Rivera could podium, but everyone not in orange are clear underdogs.

Pretty comprehensive article here:

remember to think of it in terms of country teams… but then who’s the gun and who’s the bullet?

Can we all post in UTC? I'm very confused. Or at least the time zone.

The IOC website had it listed in local time. Japan Standard Time is GMT+9. As of right now there, it’s 5:30 AM Saturday the 24th, while here in California’s elbow it’s 1:30 pm PDT (GMT-7) Friday.

And GMT is not UTC. It has a summertime offset.
I think the RR is around 8:00 PDT meaning it will be over too late for me. Might be fun to see that start.

According to my Google search which pulls up the official schedule, men's rr is at 7pm tonight, PST. My issue is the menu on my ATT Uverse does not mention what events are showing later nor what other optional channels other than the given local NBC and NBC Sports. I guess I'll just have to jump channels.

Just beating a dead horse to death. PST or PDT? We should all use UTC!

You can stream live online if youíve got a login from your cable provider and a mind to figure it out. Any event? Iím not sure.

For the men, it's gotta be somebody who can climb. There's a nasty 6.5 km, 10% climb and then a descent to the finish. So Pogacar, Roglic or WvA, I'd guess. Remco is wholly unproven this year, as far as I'm concerned. Michael Woods as a dark horse.

For the women, it will be one of the Dutch for sure. I'l bet on van Vlleuten.

Edit: Plus, we don't know if Remco has recovered the nerve to descend fast.

GCN+ has all the bike races listed (mtb, road, bmx, itt) and is an official broadcaster. Why can't NBC have done this with peacock?

I set the DVR last night and recorded 8 hours on Sportsnet (I am in Canada). They showed a lot of the race, including the neutral zone. However with about 46 km left they switched to water polo between teams that nobody in Canada would care about. Missed the end of the race, the most exciting part of any road race, and Canadian Michael Woods was in contention. To say I was pissed is an understatement. Pardon the rant.
