International Cross Preview

 

Boonen and Friends is a highlight in a weekend with no UCI World Cup, Superprestige or bpost Bank action. Instead we have a number of good international races in Europe and the USA. It will be interesting to see how many of the ‘big stars’ start any of them. Free of European commitments UK National Champion Ian Field races at the National Trophy Series for the first time this season.
