Listen to your mother: Druivencross, live

Sven Nys during recce, today. - Balint Hamvas (www.cyclephotos.co.uk)

Time for some historical muddy racing.

In Dan's words:

When I start thinking about cyclocross season (ok, more than I usually do in the year), I think about Druivencross. They call it the "mother of all cross races," but that's not why I remember it. I remember the crazy, steep, bumpy, twisty descent towards the bottom of the course. Seriously sketchtastic, and that is why it is so wonderful. If you want to see what I am talking about, go to 4:00 into the video below GS's description.

Ok, let's get the cliche out of the way right from the start: Druivencross is 'the mother of all cx races.' It's old, ok? And that's why, even though it's not a series race, a lot of the stars of cyclocross will show up and try to win. They've changed the course a bit since last year, with a start/finish on a different asphalt section (who cares), and a passage by the pond (could be fun!). Not too gimmicky, but up- and downhill for the whole time to really tire everyone out.
