The slippery, frozen course of Fiuggi created quite the drama in terms of crashes, injuries and Internet chatter. Floating above it all was Marianne Vos and Wout van Aert, motor whispers notwithstanding.
While NBC Sports aired the race delayed on cable and live on its website and apps, Italian TV also covered the lightly-attended race. It’s neat to hear a UCI Cyclocross World Cup covered in a language other than Dutch or English, but the start line tire checks missed a few tires (see ours from Elite Women’s race at Nationals here).
