Hoogerheide Netherlands Cyclocross World Cup News

HOOGERHEIDE, Netherlands (VN) — Until a few weeks ago, a mild, dry winter kept European cyclocross in a perpetual early season groove, delivering high speed, hard-packed, sun-soaked races well into January. And although there’s plenty to recommend about fall-like weather in western Europe, cyclocross without mud, week after week, just doesn’t quite seem like cyclocross.
So perhaps it’s fitting that the weather finally delivered — and delivered spectacularly — just in time for the finale of the cyclocross World Cup in Hoogerheide, Netherlands, on Sunday, just a week ahead of the world championships, a short drive across the border to the south in Zolder, Belgium.
