Struggling for a reason to get up early to watch cyclocross?
If Mathieu van der Poel cares this much about entertaining you, then maybe you should be just as interested. As I noted on Twitter, this was on the last lap of a hotly contested race, though at the time Wout Van Aert was out of the picture. Still, if he’d wrecked, he’d have lost the race. But MvdP delivers the extra effort because, well, it’s pretty hard not to be excited about cyclocross right now.
HAPPY KERSTPERIODE, a/k/a Merry Christmas! And join the chatter below, starting on December 26, to share in the fun. With last weekend’s fun and today’s Diegem event in the books, here’s a quick lineup of upcoming races (and full discussion here):
- 12/26: Heusden-Zolder (WC)
- 12/29: Azencross-Loenhout (DVV)
- 12/30: Bredene
- 1/1: Baal/ GP Sven Nys (DVV)

Enjoy! See you Monday morning, bright and early.
