Cyclo-cross World Championships 2014

The World Cyclo-cross Championships have just finished in Hoogerheide in the Netherlands. For those of you unfamiliar with the sport it is probably best described as half way between Mountain Biking and Road Racing. It is held off-road and the races are about an hour-long for men and about 45 minutes for women.

This years men’s race was as exciting a bike race as I have seen in a long time. The women’s race was a master class in cyclo-cross by the finest bicycle racer on the planet today Marianne Vos

If that has whetted your appetite you might be interested to learn that a round of the World Cup will be held in Milton Keynes next year.

If you want to watch the full races and/or the Junior and the Under-23 races they are available on the UCI’s YouTube channel.
