After an intense 2022 Fayetteville in the United States, we are returning back to Europe. Next stop Tabor, Czech Republic.
With the return back to Europe, we are expected to see a lot more racers, especially Belgian women.
The Elite Women’s field dwarfs the Elite Men’s field in terms of size.
But local hero Zdenek Stybar should offset the small field with his oversized presence.
Elite Women Start List
Marianne Vos, last year’s Waterloo champion, won’t be there, however.
After an intense three-way battle at Fayetteville, will Fem van Empel be able to defend her position against Annemarie Worst, Lucinda Brand, Ceylin del Carmen Alvarado, and Denise Betsema?
Two Canadians but no Americans will be representing North America.
Brand recently broke her metacarpal bone and will miss the race.

Elite Men Start List
Quinten Hermans and Lars van der Haar have reappeared for Tabor. Will they be able to put a stop to Eli Iserbt’s reign of dominance?
With increased competition and after an intense duel from Fayetteville, will Iserbyt be able to hold his own against Michael Vanthourenhout, Vincent Baestaens, Michael van den Ham, and Laurens Sweeck?
Former World Champ and Czech local Stybar also will resume his cyclocross racing, with a promised longer campaign this season.
