On Friday, nearly every racer was out on the 2017 Cyclocross World Championships course, studying tricky off-camber sections, testing out tires and tire pressures, riding with teammates or family memers, or stopping to provide autographs to adoring fans.
Cyclocross Magazine photographer Marcel Hilger was out on the course on Friday and captured this set of great images of Americans and other racers out on the course. Have a look at a few of our favorites, with a full slideshow gallery below.
