Namur will organise the next European Championship on 5 November.

Erwin Vervecken, former three-time World Champion #rainbow, will add a few extras to the regular routes used for the World Cup event of the last few years. He's adding two bridges making loops possible (I'm not fond of that. When they started the race in 2009, Namur was known as a route without any artificial obstacles, I like it better that way) and the section in superelevation which had been made easier in recent years because of a path that had been made will be made harder again, harder to get the right balance.

It should be this one, shouldn't it?

Not really found of the European championship. Unnecessary addition to the already heavy calendar but still good for my family town and nice to see that cyclocross racing still exists in Wallonia.
