Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

WC race this weekend: who beats Nijs?

Will Vervecken or Declercq be able to beat Nijs?
The dutchman Groenendael is NOT looking good mentally en Bart Wellens is having some problems in his training too...

Problem is the lack of competition for our belgian riders...
Nijs wil win super prestige and World cup, and probably even become world champ....

not very exciting that way...

You could be right there geens...your fellow country men seem to have the sport sewn up at the moment, but I agree it does make things a little predictable.

It should be a little more open in the junior and espoir categories...this season.....

Can't wait to see the worlds this year

Nys might be able to win both the SP and World Cup but he has to do better than his last races.

For me Groenendael is still one of the favorites for the WK (altough I hope of course that a Belgium rider wins :-)).
Especially when the Belgian riders are doing stupid things like during the Belgian Championship (sprint Declercq - Vervecken).

Well, my ticket for Zolder is ready....counting down!!!

I'm with you there, dude. It really looks like Nijs peaked early. He's been nowhere lately. I mean seventh in the Belgian nationals? What's up with that?
