Cycling pedals to the leading pack of sport on S4C

The world’s best cycle races are now shown on S4C – including the Classics races and the world famous Le Tour de France.

Throughout the year, S4C is providing free-to-air coverage of some of the top cycling coverage from Wales, UK, Europe and the world.

The cycling acion – both live action and highlights - are shown throughout the year on the programme Seiclo.

Seiclo recently had coverage of the Paris-Tours Classic.

S4C’s new Sunday sports show Clwb also features cycling, with the first terrestrial coverage of Manon Carpenter’s gold medal victory in the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships in Norway.

The cycling coverage has already won a following as Rhodri Gomer Davies, commentator Wyn Gruffydd, heads a team of contributiors which also includes pro racer Gruff Lewis.

Dave Brailsford, who led Team Sky to two Tour de France victories, welcomes the S4C coverage.

“It’s fantastic news that S4C are showing the Tour de France and the Classics,” says Dave Brailsford.

“To have them shown on S4C is just a fantastic thing and I hope it’ll bring a whole new audience from Wales and more participation in Wales to the sport of cycling.”
