Battenkill 2012 Live Video Stream

More about the Battenkill

Most years thousands of spectators and cycling enthusiasts flock to see top pros and fast amateur racers battle on what is undeniably one of the most challenging courses.  There are sections that have no asphalt and tough short climbs for 82 miles.  With attacks likely to start at mile zero, the 2012 race will be one of attrition and an exciting event to watch.  On that latter point, we realized there was no way to actually watch the event as it is not televised.  After some brainstorming and less than a week of development time,  we are pleased to announce a free application based on the Uberity mobile platform for live events.    Please be kind – there are bound to be technical difficulties in keeping the stream.
