As someone else pointed out, there's a good reason that they hold cyclocross in Belgium in the winter - that's summer and the racing season in Australia.
Imagine them throwing mud and beer on an Aussie.
The photo caption may have called it ballet, but from the video I'd have to go with kickboxing.

they ended up DQ ing him
Silly Wellens. Doesn't he know to behave and take any chance to get a win (or at least, keep a win when you actually get one) when Sven Nys isn't around.

They did DQ him but reinstated the win after the situation was explained.
