Zonhoven is a relatively new race but it’s almost became immediately a classic. The sand pit, ‘de Kuil’, is one of those magical places, that you have to see in person once in your life, if you like cyclocross. The race has been put on in late October – early November for the last few years, so the mid-December slot was always going to offer us a unique experience.
Zonhoven, as always, didn’t disappoint. For the first time since I’ve been visiting this race, the weather was grim, there was snow and just general doom and gloom. But that didn’t make this race one of the best in the whole calendar.
This is my last race for the rest of the year, more details on that in a coming post early next week.
