Dirty dozen for Sven Nys? Middelkerke Superprestige... LIVE

It's the final race of the Superprestige today, and the penultimate cx weekend. In Middelkerke - near the coast - Sven Nys is in pole position to win his twelfth Superprestige overall.

Type: sandy
Previous podium: Albert, Pauwels, Stybs
TV: VIER, 16h

Middelkerke is the final Superprestige race of the series, so today is the day we find out if Nys wins his twelfth - yes, 12th - SP ever or if someone else gets to grab their first. Technically, Bart Wellens has won it before (in 03-04), but somehow I don't see him repeating that feat. Anyway. Middelkerke is also known as the Noordzeecross, and the Noordzee is the north sea. Unfortunately we don't race in the dunes though, but in a sportpark which goes by the name of 'the crocodiele' (spelling error included). There are some sand sections though, so that's good.

Oh, and if you hang around the Vier dudes usually follow up the final race with a SP round-up.
