- The watching pro Cyclocross thread (will contain spoilers I guess)
Thought we could have a thread on the pro cx races, World Cup, superprestige, DVv trophee etc. Similar to the ones on the DH. Looks like we can watch the world cup races on YouTube now and superprestige is on flo bikes.
Thoughts on bogense last week? I enjoyed the racing but can’t help thinking the descents were too technical, I’m all for run-ups and cambers that have to be run but when pros are running all the descents too it doesn’t make for great viewing and I guess not the most fun to race either. Wonder if it will be modified before the world champs there? Someone made the point if ’tis icy in January could be very dangerous.
Zeven today and it look s like a cracker. Cyclocross mag course inspection
Shame no Tom Pidcock racing but twitter says he’s doing a big training block, I guess he’s the world champs to consider.
Will be watching tomorrow morning before racing our local league I reckon 😀Posted 2 years agoRoter SternMember
But many of the pros road the descents in Bogense ( the men’s race at least). It made for some comedy crashes in the U 23 races. I thought the venue was great and the sea crashing over the riders looked superb. God knows what it will be like next year for the champs if there is a storm. Toon Aerts pirouetting the barriers was also a highlight.Posted 2 years agoaPMember
Tom rode well today, steady start then just pulled away. Sanne had a poor day but Evie was awesome. Big crash at the start the men’s race – but after that, the speed of them was astounding. And we had breakfast sitting next to Stephen Hyde.Posted 2 years ago
The course today would trounce anything held in the UK it was very technical. Those of you who think that CX is just riding round a field should go to Namur next year.vdubber67Member
I hate it when commentators (usually Ant Mc…) go on about “this will suit the MTBers” or “she’s using her MTB skills” etc.
BUT – have to say Evie did seem to ride some of the race today like a MTBer riding cross. You know. All the corners are ridden full gas with the back end stepping out, borderline out of control. Awesome to watch!
