The Kerstperiode cyclocross bonanza has been delivering great racing and a few surprises along the way.

Watch rivals Mathieu van der Poel and Wout van Aert battle on the muddy, technical course in the videos below.

Wednesday’s X²0 Badkamers Trofee Azencross stop in Herentals continued Tuesday’s epic mud, but the sun still brought out the rainbows and stars with an anticipated duel between Van Aert and Van der Poel that was cut short due to a flat tire.

Azencross typically features the BMX-style pump rollers of Loenhout, but due to COVID-19, this year’s event moved to Herentals. The race still featured rollers, but they were a slow, muddy bog instead of a carpeted pump track.

Watch the men take to the course below. See the women’s race video from Herentals here.
