Krawatencross... LIVE

No need to look for the world champion, alas, since Stybs is somewhere with Boonen prepping their cobbled assault. On the bright side that does mean we get to play 'spot the Belgian champ', as Sven Nys will be wearing the Belgian driekleur.

The races after the worlds always sort of feel less important than the ones before, but the Krawatencross really is fun.

The first race after Worlds, so the first race with new rainbow kit. Or not new rainbow kit, I'd like that.

Anyways. The Krawatencross is cool. No special gimmicks, but it rarely disappoints. The race is around a small lake, a pond if you will, and they skirt the water so closely one of these days of 'em is 'bout to get a wet rather than a skinsuit. They then turn to the forest, where it's twisty and hilly. Good times for all.
