Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA will air daily live coverage of the world road cycling championships from Bergen, Norway, starting Sunday.
Events will stream live on NBC Sports Gold’s Cycling Pass.
Olympic Channel coverage will be live streamed on OlympicChannel.com, the Olympic Channel app, NBCSports.com/live and the NBC Sports app.
The championships start with team and junior events before the elite races begin Tuesday.
Headliners include Slovakian Peter Sagan, who hopes to become the first man to win three straight world titles in the elite road race on Sept. 24.
Sagan was kicked out of the Tour de France on July 4 after making contact with Mark Cavendish, who then fell in a bunched sprint stage finish, suffering a broken right shoulder-blade. Cavendish remains out of action.
The men’s time trial on Wednesday features a summit finish.
That could favor Chris Froome, who is coming off sweeping the Tour de France and Vuelta a España this summer. The Kenyan-born, South African-raised Brit took Olympic time trial bronze medals in 2012 and 2016.
German Tony Martin will be looking to break the record for most world time trial titles with his fifth crown. He’s tied with retired Swiss Fabian Cancellara.
American Amber Neben, 42, defends her world time trial title on Tuesday. The Dutch team features the last two Olympic road race champions — Marianne Vos and Anna van der Breggen.
