new services that will increase the importance of Cycling.tv to the global cycling community. This success is
the basis for Cycling.tv to create an incredibly valuable media property at the heart of that community.
Niche Sports / Cycling
Cycling.tv is the world’s first broadband channel dedicated to the sport of cycling created by Narrowstep in
2003. Thought up by one cycling enthusiast based in London who started the channel with a few viewers, no
investment or sponsorship and minimal content, it has become the world’s premium cycling channel offering
the best in live race coverage and highlights from the world of cycling. In two and a half years, Cycling.tv has
acquired exclusive global internet rights for many world-wide events. The company has grown from a staff
of two to 12 and its commercial success has been driven by its ability to deliver highly effective sponsorship
packages to a number of high-profile brand partners.
