Disclaimer: Bikerumor.com and its editorial staff can not be held liable for consequences due to inappropriate time spent away from work & life duties, or heckling Wout Van Aert from your cubicle….. though I can think of a couple of past employments I’d gladly lose over watching this in the loudest way possible. Don’t for one second think you can make it 10 minutes in and turn it off.
Sveness 4.2, from the folks at CXhairs.com, is not just a race between some fast guys. This is the Koksijde World Cup in Belgium on the course most believe sets the bar as far as cross courses are concerned. It’s safe to say, 99% of elite cross racers could not do one lap on this course without dismounting. (the 1% are here and do it). The drama unfolds as the battle for the podium is between iconic legend and 2005 & 2013 World Champion Sven Nys, new kid on the block, Wout Van Aert who has won almost everything he touches, and 2015 World Champion Mathieu van der Poel who is doing his first World Cup Race of the season due to a knee injury.
Jump the barrier and check out the some of the best cross coverage ever at the Koksijde World Cup…..
Though a very well put together edit, nothing beats the Jaws reference in this morsel.
