    Default Koppeberg cross last lap (youtube).

    Amazing how 36 years old Nijs rides the world champ off his wheel!
    Turned the pedals with anger after bad luck recently.

    I love how they're riding through piles of beer cups.

    Does anyone know who these announcers are? I always hear them listening online and enjoy them so much more than than their american counterparts and I don't even know what language they are speaking.

    that thing makes the venues I turn myself inside out at each weekend look like the kiddies course

    Michiel Wuyts , Christophe van de Goor, Paul Herrijgers (ex WC Kokshijde) and others. They speak Flemish / Dutch. You can download the races after several hours to a day often at cyclingtorrents.nl

    I was thinking "that looks pretty smooth compared to the DH and Enduro runs I do" but it takes skill to ride fully rigid rim braked bikes with such skinny tires. 140mm to 210mm travel with big tires makes a world of difference. Those guys have exceptional skill.

    That looks like a lot of fun and ridiculously hard. It's just amazing how strong these guys are and the handling skills they have

    I couldn't put that kind of power down on the first lap, let alone the last lap. Damn that was a surge!

    IMHO Cyclocross riders = WRC drivers; the best handlers of their respective machines..

    Sven is looking absurdly strong this year. I didn't think his form would last, clearly I was mistaken. Its been a Alberts-Nys show in Europe this year....Pauwels a distant third.
