Watch today's French cyclocross national championships from Pont-Château, Men's Elite race, via live streaming video. Francis Mourey (Française des Jeux) is the big favorite. Winner in 2005, 2007, and 2008, Mourey is in a class by himself among Frenchmen. His three recent wins, in October, November and December in the "Challenge national" have come with increasing margins of victory. Barring incident, he should confirm today at the national level ahead of his ultimate goal, the Cyclo-cross World Championships on February 1 in Hoogerheide, The Netherlands.
Start time: 15:00 CET (9am U.S. Eastern)

Update: Regarding other cyclocross national championships, aside from the French (link above) we have as yet not found sources for live streaming...and are not optimistic at this point. In Belgium, the race is not on Sporza but is instead on the 2BE channel. If 2BE streams over the internet, we aren't aware of it. The Italian race is on ABSat channel on Hotbird for those with satellite coverage. -Bernie S.
Update: French cyclocross national championships have begun (playing on France 4 TV) but as yet here in France we're only seeing a promotional video loop on the france3.fr streaming link. Bernie S. in the UK also reports not seeing the race yet.
