I like the course in Hasselt. It’s flat and it doesn’t offer that much in terms of spectacle but it’s rideable in the worst weather conditions and there is a mighty ditch not long after the start that looks awesome as the riders bunny hop over it at crazy speeds.
Also, this was the first year that they held a race for women and while Helen Wyman was fighting hard to hold Sanne Cant back, Cant pipped her in the final sprint. Great to see Gabby Durrin on the podium though.
Tomorrow is Asper-Gavere, my favourite course, it is said to be very, very muddy, so tomorrow will be a grand day. More to come soon.
And don’t forget, that the perfect Christmas gift for that special someone in your life who loves cyclocross could be the very nice and very coffee table 2012/2013 book!
