British Cycling today announced that both of its national road series will broadcast on British Eurosport in 2013, bringing the best action from the British pro peloton to the home of cycling on TV.

Jonny Clay, Cycle Sport and Membership director at British Cycling said: “British Cycling is happy to be working with Eurosport again on airing our national road series.

"The channel gives us a great route to the core cycling audience and puts the best of our domestic calendar alongside the broadcast of some of the monuments of our sport."

"The channel gives us a great route to the core cycling audience and puts the best of our domestic calendar alongside the broadcast of some of the monuments of our sport. This broadcast deal provides the organisers of the events across the series with a great platform upon which to capitalise on the unprecedented popularity of our sport.”

The 2013 broadcast deal covers the six rounds of the Elite Circuit Series and Premier Calendar respectively. David Kerr, Managing Director of British Eurosport, spoke of their satisfaction at the deal when he said:

“Adding the best domestic races to our existing 40 race programme of Grand Tours and Classics adds even greater depth to our year round cycling coverage and strengthens our position as the home of Cycling.”
