Watch every move live right here on as riders battle it out at the Alabama Cycling Classic with the Sunny King Criterium on Saturday and the McClellan Road Race on Sunday. 

The two-day race is the second of USA Cycling’s 2017 Pro Road Tour calendar.


Brad Sohner will provide live, online analysis from noon CT to the final sprint finish by the pro men at approximately 9:30 p.m. CT on Saturday for the Sunny King Crit.

“Anniston was one of the early adopters of streaming in cycling, and this allows us to offer one of the best live products on the Pro Road Tour,” Sohner said. “This year we will have more cameras, the addition of a full graphics package, and some fun surprises I think cycling fans will really love.”

What it takes to broadcast a bike race


Racing moves just north of downtown on Sunday to the Historic Buckner District for the McClellan Road Race. The pro women will tackle a 69-mile course beginning at 9 a.m. and the pro men will battle for 91 miles beginning at 1 p.m. The course will again include multiple laps over Bains Gap, which includes gradients up to 17 percent. Sohner will broadcast live at 10 a.m., with a one-hour delay.

Live race updates and photos will be provided for race fans via Facebook and Twitter.

A portion of proceeds from all bicycle race registration fees will be donated to the American Cancer Society Relay for Life chapter of Calhoun County. In the more than 10 years this beneficiary has been involved with the cycling weekend, more than $100,000 has been raised for cancer research and patient support.
