Have you recovered from the madness that is Koppenberg yet? No? That is unfortunate, because Zonhoven is even more bonkers. It's a sand race, around a giant arena created by a natural sandpit. The descents are super crazy, the ascents are so steep the riders pretty much crawl up on all fours. Ask me for my top five favourite races, and Zonhoven is in it. Easily. So is Koppenbergcross incidentally, so this is really an awesome cx week.
