Cyclocross Worldcup Lignières en Berry
A great event in France showed that cyclocross could be big also outside of Belgium. Around seventy riders found their way to the last worldcup race before the finals in Hoogerheide NED next weekend.
The course was built up on a horsecourt which was mostly flat. Long strait sections were the connection between some very technical and twisty parts. Some sections were very muddy and others not at all. The course was obviously marked very narrow, because there was just a minimum of space to overtake an other rider for example.
That meant once again, the only thing to get right, was the start and that’s what I managed to do. That was important, because on the first narrow turns the trouble in the pack began. It was a fight for each spot and I collected some hits on my legs. But it was worth it. I could hold my position and rode a constant race without any special problems. I saved a nice 34th place, starting from the 7th row.
