If you're a cyclo-cross fan, then you'll want to check out the Universal Sports website on Sunday where a same-day delay video feed of the Cyclocross World Championships will be shown.

The World Feed, so-called because it's a raw feed without commentary, will be available a couple of hours after the completion of the competition in Hoogerheide, The Netherlands. Video from both the men's and women's competition will be available.

Check back to cycling schedule page at UniversalSports.com for times and details about the webcast.

Leading contenders for medals in the elite men's division include Sven Nys, 32, of Belgium, Lars Boom, 23, of The Netherlands, Zdenek Stybar, 23, Czech Republic, Erwin Vervecken, 36, of Belgium, and Niels Albert, 22, of Belgium. 


Nys is considered the top rider in cyclo-cross, although he's only won the World's once. Boom is the defending champion and Vervecken holds three gold medals.

Among the five cyclists representing the US is Jonathan Page. The 32-year-old from New Hampshire is the first and only US cyclist to medal at the elite men's competition, earning a silver medal in 2007.

Page was recently cleared of wrongdoing in a doping investigation.

Two-time national cyclo-cross champion Ryan Trebon is also competing for the US, as are Matt Shriver, Jeremy Powers, and Brian Matter.

For the elite women bicyclists, CyclingNews calls out Katie Compton of the US among the four with the best chances to win. Other US women are Rachel Lloyd, Georgia Gould, Susan Butler, and Laura Van Gilder.

Other leading female contenders are defending champion Hanka Kupfernagel of Germany, and Daphny van den Brand and Marianne Vos, both of The Netherlands.

More information about the race is available at the Universal Sport cycling page and CyclingNews, which will provide live text coverage from the event.

According to the Universal Sports schedule, the NBC affiliated sports channel is scheduled to webcast from the UCI Track Cycling Worlds in Poland on March 25 and the UCI Road Cycling Worlds from Switzerland on Sept. 23.
