Women’s Tour Down Under video recaps

A few women's teams have been putting out quality recap videos from the Tour Down Under.

Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.

The 2017 Women’s Tour Down Under kicked off on Saturday with 17 teams vying for the first big UCI win of the season. While it’s not a Women’s WorldTour event, the four-day stage race in Adelaide, Australia draws many of women’s pro cycling’s biggest names out of hibernation to test out their early season legs. Orica – Scott, Wiggle – High5, and Canyon – SRAM raced along with a host of impressive teams looking to make a mark early this year.

While WWT races are held to specific standards for live race coverage and post-race videos, races like the Women’s Tour Down Under — a UCI 2.2 — often lack real-time race coverage or video recaps.

To address this race coverage blackout, several teams are taking matters into their own hands, providing behind-the-scenes videos, race reports, and short clips of the race action from the previous day’s racing. It’s a win-win for women’s cycling where fans can follow along with the racing — albeit a bit delayed — while teams keep the sponsors happy. It’s not perfect, but it helps progress women’s cycling bit by bit.

As for the Women’s Tour Down Under, Orica – Scott, Wiggle – High5, and Canyon – SRAM posted video recaps after each day of racing and we’ve gathered them together for some mini race coverage.
