“We are excited to work with FloBikes to generate better visibility for our sport and our athletes in Canada,” said Matthew Jeffries, Executive Director at Cycling Canada. “FloBikes has quickly emerged as a go-to platform for cycling content in Canada, providing reliable and high quality streaming for some of the biggest events in the world across a range of disciplines, including our Milton UCI Track World Cup and the entire package of UCI World Cup and World Championship events.”
“Before FloBikes, the ability for Canadian fans to watch top cycling events live was fragmented,” FloSports Director of Global Rights Acquisition Ryan Fenton said. “We recognized an opportunity to provide a better experience for the community and invested in creating a home on FloBikes for these events to be seen in Canada. We are thrilled to partner with Cycling Canada in the shared mission of increasing the exposure of the sport and of the top events hosted on Canadian soil.”
