The Cyclo-Cross Podcast – Friday

Feb 02, 07:32 PM

Friday | The Cycling Podcast heads to Valkenburg in the Netherlands for the World Cyclo-Cross Championships and Lionel Birnie finds that persistent rain has made the course very muddy before the racing even gets under way.

Lionel checks out the course, asks a couple of mechanics how they plan to cope with the muddy conditions and catches up with Renaat Schotte for a last-minute form guide before the women's elite and under-23 and men's junior races on Saturday.

The Cycling Podcast is supported by Rapha and Science In Sport.
