Where U.S. fans can watch cycling in 2019

Here's a list of the 2019 season's major pro cycling races and where Americans can watch them online.

Okay American cycling fans, it is that time of the year again. Time for us to look ahead at the schedule of pro cycling events and try to figure out how we will watch our favorite races. On one hand, you could scour the internet to find pirate streams. We’ve all done that at some point, right?

Fortunately, the field of professionally produced, reliable streams is better than ever. Plus, all of these options — Fubo.tv, FloBikes, NBC Sports Gold, and RedBull.tv — offer apps for devices like Apple TV and Roku, so you can watch cycling on your big screen.

A FloBikes subscription is $12.50/month for an annual pro account. The month-by-month rate is $30/month. It will also broadcast the Brico Cross, DVV, Superprestige, and Soudal Classics cyclocross series, as well as Rochester Cyclocross and RenoCross.

Fubo.tv’s subscription costs $56.98/month, when you combine the base subscription of $44.99 and the cycling package add-on of $11.99. The base subscription includes 80+ non-cycling channels, which is why it is so much more expensive than FloBikes, which offers a similar slate of race coverage.

NBC Sports Gold has yet to confirm its schedule for the remainder of 2019. Ordinarily, it broadcasts all ASO events, including the Tour de France. In years past, it has also broadcast major UCI events, such as world championships and the track and cyclocross World Cups. Its subscription renews right before the Tour de France in early June. Currently, you can subscribe for the first half of 2019 for $29.99. Last year, an annual subscription cost $49.99.

RedBull.tv broadcasts all rounds of the UCI mountain bike World Cup as well as mountain bike world championships for free.

Eleven Sports and NBC Olympics are also expected to broadcast cycling events via some cable television packages.

Fans of criterium racing can subscribe to a full coverage package with USA Crits, which streams all of its races and provides highlights and replays.
