Heusden-Zolder lies in an area which used to be known as the
Land of Birdsong
The Cyclocross worlds are almost upon us. As I type, the Junior race starts in approximately
36 35 hours, and by late Sunday afternoon all the rainbow jerseys will have been dished out. Will Mathieu van der Poel double up and take the stripes for the second year running (& riding)? Can Sanne Cant crown a superlative season with the worlds jersey, to go match her Euro Champs version? (The absence of Marianne Vos & Pauline Ferrand-Prevot will surely help her). The way this season has went it would be mad to bet against these two, but there are plenty of riders on the start line who will make life difficult for the two hot favourites.
