UCI World Cup, Koksijde

It’s great to be back in Belgium, Cyclocross Handbook will be visiting the continent throughout the season to report on DVV, Superprestige, World Cups and of course the Worlds in Valkenberg.

Cyclocross Handbook’s last visit to Koksijde witnessed one of the cyclocross’s finest duels, between Wout Van Aert and Sven Nys. It wasn’t quite as epic this time around, but there were some astonishing solo performances. It was cold and windy for most of the day, with a particularly strong headwind making things difficult on the long finish straight.
