”Every girl is beautiful, every girl deserves a chance” – Sanne van Paassen

I’m not for that women (or men) should get a job to make the workplace equal between men and women. I’m for the best one for the job. Everyone should be worth the same no matter of gender or skin colour. Cyclocross is a sport where women and men aren’t worth the same, sadly but true.

But it can be changed. So let’s give everyone a the same chances. The girl on the picture for example, she isn’t so old in the sport but she is a girl you should know of if you’re interested in cyclocross.

Here is both men’s and women’s race from Ronse yesterday:

Superprestige Gieten and EKZ CrossTour Dielsdorf

A lot of racing this weekend. Like the first Superprestige cyclocross in Gieten. Here by TV Drenthe:

With a happy Sanne Cant on the startline, maybe first picture of her smiling:

Soudal GP Neerpelt Cyclocross

While it was road World Championships in Richmond there was full on racing cyclocross in Belgium, a race usually followed by many more when it doesn’t collide with a World Championship.

Here is some highlights from the men’s race:

  1. Wout van Aert
  2. Kevin Pauwels
  3. Laurens Sweeck

The women’s race is as usual not sent but Sanne van Paassen is Vloging so here you go:

  1. Sanne van Paassen
  2. Ellen van Loy
  3. Maud Kaptheijns

CX World Championship Men Elite

Today I went to a friend together with a lot of cyclocrossfans and watched the Men elite World Championship. Great atmosphere but not so great race. Was a crash in the beginning. Mathieu Van der Poel attacked in the beginning and then everyone raced around 8 laps. Mathieu Van der Poel won. After it was a sprint with Wout Van Aert and Lars Van Der Haar. Van Aert came second, Van Der Haar 3rd.

The women elite was much more exciting.

So no pictures from the race but got a picture on the bike that was supposed to win. Zdenek Stybars Specialized Crux. Pink, Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 and FSA components like they are sponsored with this year. And Roval Rapide CLX40 wheels:


One thing is a bit strange. When Stybar raced for Telenet-Fidea he used a FSA Plasma handlebar, the same when he started in Omega Pharma-Quick Step on his Eddy Merckx. But now a regular stem and handlebar.
