Cyclocross World Championships 2017, Day 1

Welcome to the first day of the Cyclocross World Championships coverage on Cyclocross Handbook. It’s been a fantastic first day of racing here in Bieles with some brilliant results. If you haven’t watched the YouTube feed yet, come back later, the gallery contains spoilers. The course has received lots of praise and this is well deserved, so many interesting features and some proper scary moments. It was raining when I arrived in Bieles, and that rain froze where it landed, making for some extremely tricky early conditions. The Juniors got the worst of it, and it has been thawing throughout the day. Tomorrow looks as if it might be wet and slippery rather than icy. Thanks for looking, and Be sure to come back tomorrow. Remeber to give Cyclocross Handbook a like on Facebook to stay up to date with everything that’ll be going on there too.
