Cyclocross World Championships: the rise of the Babushka

A long overdue post. We have been in Bergen op Zoom, NED, for around a week now. So far we have clocked up:

  • 24hrs of plane travel (and 60kg of bike luggage)
  • 2 Belgian CX races (and 1 win!)
  • 1 case of food poisoning
  • 1 jar Speculoos
  • around a million loads of washing
  • some new friends in Hoogerheide

I have been meaning to write a post for so long but I've just finished a couple of interviews and I'm sick of telling the same story again. (You can find a much better article here anyway.) So here are some photos.. and all the exciting details will follow later.

Ride happy.

PS - Hi to Donna's ice hockey chicks - and thanks for the cheers!
