A ‘standard’ subscription to Discovery+ which includes Eurosport’s cycling coverage will set you back £6.99 per month or £59.99 per year. The package includes year-round cycling streams as well as other live sports including snooker, tennis, motorsports, the Paris Olympic Games, and more.

How to watch the Cyclocross World Championships around the world
Eurosport/Discovery+ will also air the racing in various countries around Europe and the rest of the world – check local listings to make sure. Australia doesn’t have any broadcaster listed as having picked up the rights so that means tuning to the UCI YouTube Channel which has a live stream, that is selectively geoblocked when it comes to locations where other broadcasters are showing the event.
