Where to watch Sir Bradley Wiggins take on cycling's UCI Hour Record on Sunday

Five choices for UK viewers - including free-to-watch options on TV and online

Sir Bradley Wiggins is taking aim at one of cycling’s most prestigious records on Sunday evening – the Hour, currently held by another ex-Team Sky rider, Movistar’s Alex Dowsett. If you’re not lucky enough to be at the Lee Valley VeloPark, here’s details of where you can watch it – including for free.

In the UK, Sky will be covering Wiggins’ attempt to beat the 52.937km set by Dowsett last month in Manchester, and there are five ways to watch it – including through Freeview and YouTube, meaning you don’t even need a Sky subscription.

The programme lasts 2 hours, starting at 6pm and finishing at 8pm, with the record attempt itself scheduled to start at 6.30pm.

Here’s where it will be shown:


Sky Sports 2 HD
Freeview channel PICK (channel 11)

Online (all UK only live streams)
Sky Sports App

Elsewhere in the world, fans across Europe and in the Asia-Pacific region will be able to watch on Eurosport, and the broadcaster has exclusive rights for France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Poland and Spain.
