GVA Trofee Koppenberg
One of the classics of 'cross races will take place tomorrow in Oudenaarde. Koppenbergcross is the second race of the Gazet van Antwerpen Trofee series and the race has traditionally been very tough test of man and machine. And if nothing else, the race will be hard fought between the two Belgian cyclocross superstars, Sven Nys and Niels Albert. Albert won the first race of GVA Trofee in Namur with fairly large margin, but Sven Nys wants to take his sixth straight victory of Koppenbergcross so if Albert wants to keep his clear track record, he has a taunting task of beating Sven Nys in his own game. It will be an exciting race.
The weather forecast calls for some rain showers overnight so the race course may very well turn into mud bath yet again. The course looks dry in the photos shot of Albert training on the course, but bit of rain can change this overnight.
You can watch GVA Trofee Koppenberg live at GVA Trofee website. The broadcast is scheduled to start at 15:00 CET on Sunday October the 25th.
This works very well for Manitobans. Get up at 7 AM, have some coffee, watch pros race, get pumped up and head to Whittier park and race yourself.
