This UCI World Cup race will be one you don’t want to miss out on. For the first time, the UCI World Cup will be held in all snow. If this race is a success, you just might see cyclocross during the Winter Olympics.

Some big names will be leading this big event, with others missing.

Here is the course layout:

Daan Soete is certainly ready for the snowy race, as he previewed the course and terrorized skiers on his cyclocross bike:

Eli Iserbyt, Quinten Hermans, Michael Vanthourenhout, Vincent Baestaens will be leading the charge on the new all snow course. Toon Aerts and Laurens Sweck will not make the trip.

However, the highly-anticipated duel between Wout van Aert and Tom Pidcock will have another sequel after Van Aert crushed Pidcock and everyone else in Boom.

Can anyone give Van Aert a run for his money? It’s all up for grabs in this new all snow course!

Mathieu van der Poel will not yet make the start.
