For the hard-core cyclocross fan, we’ve got the full pit lane assignments for the 2012 Cyclocross World Championships in Koksijde, Belgium, and they differ for each race. Will it matter? In years past, racers have dropped their bike intentionally or unintentionally in front of other riders, causing crashes and mechanicals, so you never know. But since the pits are two-way affairs, a lucky position on one side means an unlucky slot on the opposite side.
With sand potentially clogging gears, and some mechanics potentially removing all lubrication from chains, the pits may play a major role in the races. We’ll know in a few hours. See the layout below.
