We've written the preview posts, now it's time to get watching. Find TGS' preview for the Belgian championships here, and my look at all the others here. Unlike last year's universal mudfest, unfortunately most of the courses seem to be pretty much dry. This suits: Meeusen, Van der Haar, Sweeck and Harris, who all see their chances of wearing their countries' colours improved.
Conor's Picks to Win
I'll take a selection from each country.
Belgium: Van Aert and Meeusen, Cant and Van Loy
If Meeusen can stick with Van Aert, he stands a chance on a fast course, especially as Van Aert never does to well in championships.
Netherlands: Van der Poel and Van der Haar, De Boer, De Jong and Stultiens
Van der Haar versus Van Aert is probably the clash of the day.
France: Venturini and Mourey, Mani
Germany: Meisen and Walsleben
USA: Hyde and Powers, Compton and Antonneau
