    Default Talk to me about cross in Belgium and Ned in Jan/Feb

    As luck would have it, my work schedule has done a bit of a screeching left turn and I'll likely be in Malle, about an hour east of Antwerp from mid January until late February with most Sundays off. I've done a bit of triangulating with Google Maps and the UCI calendar, but I know this is not the whole story.

    I've got a folding bike, am rail savvy, and can certainly rent a car. It looks like I'm within an hour of Hoogerheide, Hoogstraten, Hulst, and Oostmalle. My schedule is more flexible early so a round trip flight to the Worlds isn't out of the question.

    What's the skinny? Do any of these sell out/require tickets in advance? Is it easier to manage without trying to park a hire car? I'm sure I could drag my non-cycling, non-nutty work colleagues to at least one of these. Which one?

    I would try to get to Antwerp on 1/12 for Belgie CX nats. I went in 2015 and it's something everyone should see once. I don't think venue matters as much as atmosphere and it will be a national championships worthy course.

    Hoogerheide the week before worlds potentially

    Otherwise I think Jolanda Neff racing in Switzerland for worlds will be special
