We're just a week out from the 2018 UCI Cyclocross world championships in Valkenburg, Netherlands. The top-ranked cyclocross athletes from around the world will compete for the right to wear the coveted rainbow stripes.
Here is the RideCX preview and predictions for the athletes favored to win.
As of this writing, the forecast for Valkenburg says "MUD" with several likely days of rain in the week prior to the Elite Men and Women races, overnight lows in the 30's and daytime highs in the 40's, and rain in the forecast for race day. It could be cold, wet, and miserable, favoring athletes who thrive in those conditions.
Feb 3-4, 2018.
NBC Sports Gold (a streaming subscription service) has broadcast rights in the USA. The race will also be broadcast on the UCI YouTube channel, but will likely be region-locked to exclude USA viewers unless a VPN or proxy is used.
Given the weather conditions we're looking for riders who are comfortable in wet, mud, cold conditions.
