Superprestige Zonhoven, Zonhoven, Belgium.

Superprestige Zonhoven is an icon of cyclocross. Taking place in the sand dunes of the Belgian lowlands. Anyone who’s ever tried to ride their bike in sand will have learnt two very valuable lessons. 1. It’s very difficult, and 2. It destroys every moving part almost immediately. Pro cyclocross riders aren’t just anyone though, which is fortunate as the terrifying drops and lengthy stretches of deep soft sand make progress tough and dangerous. The captions take up the story of a great day in Flanders. For more from Cyclocross Handbook, it’d be lovely if you’d head over to the Facebook page and give it a like.
