Freecaster gains huge momentum!



The first kick-ass news to come out of Eurobike is detailed below. Finally some even better coverage. You light my fire Freecaster.

EUROBIKE, Germany -- Freecaster.tv, the World’s leading free source for high quality action sports videos and Apple Design Award winner, is proud to enter into a three year agreement with the UCI to feature LIVE, and on-demand, the MTB and BMX World Championships as well as exclusive coverage of the MTB and BMX World Cup races.

"This landmark 3 year partnership reflects Freecaster.tv’s continued dedication to mountain biking and BMX, and a giant leap forward in delivering World Class racing to fans. This is also creating new opportunities to present the sports to a larger and new viewing public" said Raymond Dulieu, founder of Freecaster.

"Freecaster.tv was launched in May 2004 and has seen steady growth in viewership year-on-year. 2008 represented a new milestone in our history, with live commentators delivering all the action from the Nissan UCI mountain bike DH and 4X races. Now, from 2009 until the end of 2011, our continued partnership with the UCI will deliver all mountain bike disciplines as we add XC racing to our rostrum of DH and 4X coverage from the World Cups and World Championships. Furthermore, we will webcast exclusively the UCI BMX World Cup and Championships LIVE every year." he adds.

Rob Warner returns to host the English MTB DH and 4X commentaries, following a hugely popular first season behind the mic. Our BMX and MTB XC commentators will be announced shortly. New features on Freecaster.tv will include live results and rankings. Freecaster.tv will supplement the central UCI TV production with its own cameras to produce a course preview, a review of the competition to date, rider interviews, tech reviews and a post race analysis. All coverage will be accessible free of charge in flash video format to any computer connected to the internet with an adsl line.

Alexandre Baudin, marketing manager at the UCI stated "Freecaster.tv has a long history of featuring and supporting mountain biking and BMX. Their passion, professionalism and deep understanding for cycling combines with their technical expertise to make them the perfect partner for the UCI, who is further investing to strengthen media coverage of the sports. This unique partnership is a very important step to ensure free and global visibility for cycling throughout the world thanks to Freecaster.tv's large syndication of their video player to partner websites".

Other major events on Freecaster.tv are: the MX1 and MX2 World Championships, Red Bull X Fighters, X Games, Braun cruZer Tour, the Swatch TTR Snowboard World Tour, Swatch Beach Volley Ball World Tour and many more.
