Live from Badger Prairie State Park: It’s CX nats

By Patrick O’Grady

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (MDM) — USA Cycling is offering live streaming video of Sunday’s elite men’s and women’s races at the U.S. cyclo-cross championships in Madison, Wis.

Back when I worked at the other joint we routinely embedded streaming video into the website the way a vulture capitalist buries his beak in your fiscal entrails. But I’ve never tried plunking it into a free WordPress account.

So, if for some reason the YouTube widget below doesn’t work for you, you can try again at the USA Cycling hookup. Women’s coverage is slated to begin around 10:50 a.m. Mountain time; men’s coverage should kick off about 1:15 p.m. The weather? 36 and fair.

If the video proves serviceable I’ll also pop round afterward with a brief recap of each race for the video-challenged. So you’ve got that going for you. Meanwhile, read what the civilians have to say about our sport at the Wisconsin State Journal.

  1. Hey, children, what’s that sound. … « Mad Blog Media Says:

    […] update: I’m gonna try a little experiment and embed the code for the streaming video over at VeloNoise, just ’cause. I owe it to science. Advertisement GA_googleAddAttr("AdOpt", […]

    Why is the live feed so dark?!

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Hey, Bruce … how come you’re not out there breaking legs at Badger Prairie? Me, I’m a big sissy. I spend my winters annoying people from indoors now.

      As to the darkness of the feed, you’ve got me there. What I know about video production you could stuff into a thimble and still have room for a finger.

      All things considered, though, I thought they did a pretty fair job. Dave Towles, Richard Fries and the gang make it pretty easy to follow along.

        Hey Paddy!
        Refreshed the page, worked great then. Katie C RULES.

        I’m off to the Masters CX Worlds in Louisville tomorrow…wish me luck. I’m gonna need it.

        Luck to you, Bruce … lay a KFC-style crushin’ on ’em down there in Louisville. Any other Colorado folk headed down?

      • Bruce Schwab Says:

        I’d have to look at the entry list to know on the Colo Crowd…I know that four of us from Maine are going (do you have me mixed up with the Bruce Schwab in Colorado? I’m the “sailing” Bruce Schwab from NorCal, now in Maine).

        Steve Tilford is in my seeding heat…o Lordy, what have I gotten into?!

        Keep up the stupendous blog(s) and writing attitude. I’d send you money if I had any…your work is worth it.
