This UCI World Cup race will be one of the most interesting races this season. The cyclocross racers will be racing on all snow, and if everything works out, you might see cyclocross in the Winter Olympics.

As this will be the first try, some big names will be at the forefront of this new, exciting challenge, including a return of the GOAT, Marianne Vos.
