As we head into the end of 2015, I thought I’d take a minute to reflect on the biggest cycling event of the year, the UCI Road World Championships, held in Richmond, Virginia in September earlier this year.
This event was a big deal for small-town Richmond, which has no other major sporting events except for Nascar, and is home to no major league teams in any sport: baseball, football, basketball, soccer, hockey, etc.
Whether or not it could pull off the UCI championships was a major question for most of the year, but ultimately the race went off without a hitch.
Here are a few of my favorite clips from the race!
Here’s a quick highlight reel from the race, with the best moments clipped down to a short 10 minutes!
If you’ve got a bit more time, then you might also want to watch the final 40km, which is roughly the last hour of this 6 hour race!
