    The great Dutch hope Lars van der Haar has as a goal for this year to be always in the top-10 and as often as possible in the top-5. This is another year of getting used to the new environment for him, but next year (2014-2015) is where it really has to happen for him.

    He's just being modest; he's going to win a few races this year! :win

    Also, rumours of a move to Argos continue, and Lars is ready to move to another team. It should be clear around October what team he's going to ride in.

    Despite all the bad news on the road, some good news for cross: Telenet and Fidea will continue to sponsor their team for at least another 4 year. Also Wellens and Meeusen renewed their contracts at the team. Not sure what Wellens hopes to achieve for 2 more years as he hasn't shown all that much lately, but whatever.

    The groundswell of personal popularity is sometimes enough in Belgian CX, Slow. Bartje will always get an interview at races. ;)

    Test rode this 2014 Felt SS CX bike.   It was a ton of fun, the shops downtown so it was all urban riding and tearing up small plots of grass.

    Sanne van Paassen probably needs surgery, and won't start the cross season for a while. She hopes to be back in time for the worlds, but as the reason for her pain is still unsure it is hard to make an estimate.

    Since I decided to have a close watch on the Turgis brothers (I don't know why I like them, lol), both Tanguy and Anthony finished 4th in their respective categories in the nationals. 

     1 1 Mickaël CRISPIN BRETAGNE 00:29:06
    2 11 Thomas BONNET LIMOUSIN 00:00:03

    9 4 Hadrien DEGRANDCOURT BOURGOGNE 00:01:00
    10 20 Lucas MEUNIER RHONE ALPES 00:01:05

    4th and very close to the winner; 5" while the 5th is 20 seconds behind him so I guess it's very encouraging for him that is still 15, which means two years younger than the oldest of that category. :) Though he seemed rather disappointed. http://www.veloracingnews.com/article-le-classehttp://velorooms.com/Smileys/default/smiley.pngment-cadets-des-chpts-de-france-de-cyclo-cross-a-lignieres-mickael-crispin-bretagne-un-122011745.html

    Inside cyclocross’ biggest series: A conversation with Superprestige president Etienne Gevaert

    Quote
    Here’s the kind of outsize influence Gevaert wields in Belgium: when the country’s sole astronaut, Frank De Winne, spent six months aboard the International Space Station in 2009, Gevaert helped to arrange for cyclocross races to be transmitted to him via NASA’s satellite internet link. That’s right. Cyclocross in space.

    Cookson weighs in on cyclo-cross as a possible addition to the Winter Olympics:
    Cyclo-cross: an Olympic sport?
    Quote
    Cyclo-Cross at the Winter Olympic Games ... why not?

    The new IOC President Thomas Bach put out a clear message of change and modernisation for the Olympic Sports Programme at the 126th IOC session in Sochi this week, and the UCI is keen to be part of this refreshing outlook.

    I believe that Cyclo-Cross - which takes place during the northern hemisphere winter – would be an exciting addition to the Winter Games.

    Cyclo-cross requires endurance, explosive power and incredible bike handling skills. Many youngsters wishing to take up cycling pass through the school of Cyclo-Cross, and the breathtaking performances of the Junior athletes at the recent UCI World Championships in Hoogerheide clearly demonstrated the depth of young talent around the globe.

    Athletes representing 23 countries and five continents competed in the 2014 UCI Cyclo-Cross World Championships last weekend. Two nations - Macedonia and Serbia - sent athletes to the Worlds for the first time. The Women and Junior categories experienced the biggest jump in participation levels, a true demonstration of the growth the Cyclo-Cross discipline is currently experiencing.

    Cyclo-Cross would offer equal medal opportunities for men and women, the infrastructure and related costs required to install a circuit are minimal, and the principle is clear-cut: first across the line is the winner.

    But above all it is a sport that reaches out to an incredibly wide cross-section of the population. Anybody who witnessed the wonderful scenes in Hoogerheide knows that this is a sport that appeals to the young.

    Rule 6 of the Olympic Charter states that “only those sports which are practised on snow or ice are considered as winter sports.”

    That may be the case as things currently stand but President Bach has signalled his appetite for change.

    So I look forward to a debate about whether Cyclo-Cross, and indeed other sports practised in the winter season, should be part of the Winter Olympic Games.

    Brian Cookson
    UCI President
    That last sentence could open up for track cycling to be transferred. They'd have to decide what they want though; currently the regular track season (World Cups and other meets) is in the process of being moved to the summer again, in a process that will take a few Olympic cycles.

    Wow that's unexpected.. Who would have thought Albert would retire before Nys? But health issues like this really can't be helped, unfortunately enough for Albert.

    One of the best cross riders of the world suddenly quits, sad for both Albert and the sport as a whole. Now who will be left to challenge Nys' supremacy?

    I don't know if it's linked but the last performances by Albert were not really convincing. One consolation is that he's one of the few riders to finish their careers on a victory. But Oostmalle is taylor-made for him. Before that in Middelkerke he was so upset with the loss at the Superprestige GC that he wished to end his season there. He could get one step forward and thought it was "not pleasant" (his words) to race in such conditions. I'm wondering if he didn't already have problems back then.
