How to stream Waaslandcross 2021; final Ethias Cross race preview

For most fans, tomorrow is the last televised (streaming) race of the cyclocross season. Waaslandcross, from Sint-Niklaas is the final race in the 2020/21 Ethias Cross season-long series.

Ethias Cross (formerly called Brico Cross) is an 8 race series across Belgium and the Netherlands. It doesn't have an overall title based on points or time, rather, it is simply a series of individually-scored races.

Waaslandcross is the final race on the calendar for the GCN+ (formerly known as GCN Race Pass; same service, new name) calendar. GCN+ has the streaming rights to the entire Ethias Cross series for the USA market this year. From here on out, it's road cycling coverage until 'cross resumes this Fall. 

If you're on the fence about subscribing, GCN is running a half-price offer until the end of February 2021. I have info about the name change and recommendations for you.

The Elite Men and Women's fields will be wide-open. Some of the heavy-hitters have already marked the end of their seasons, moving on to road racing, while others continue to race 'cross but have verbally indicated they are fatigued.

This opens the door to some unpredictable results, with new riders getting a chance for the win and some TV time. Other rides/teams who haven't produced a win or podium yet this season could be facing special pressure in their "last chance". Look for Sanne Cant or Lars van der Haar to try and uncork something special here.
