I would have been keen but I’m in Dublin.
How was ride yesterday ? Glorious day.
Designated driver at Belgium Cross Event. Oof!
Would have been keen for this but I'm in Stockholm for the weekend.
Obviously I think this is a totally ace idea and this particular race is probably the best for many reasons BUT I have a 40th party that weekend and will have a two week old baby so my personal pref would be to go over a bit later in the year if we could find another date/race....
Have never been over the channel to a cyclocross event with a cowbell in hand so, after some chat with Graham and Ant yesterday, we thought it'd be a good idea to get a social trip over to Belgium at the end of next month.
General entry tickets are available via Ticketmaster for 13 euro: https://www.ticketmaster.be/event/telenet-uci-cyclo-cross-world-cup-koksijde-vlaamse-duinencross-tickets/31057?language=en-us
The plan would be a ferry over on the Friday evening or Saturday morning, overnight in an Airbnb somewhere relatively nearby, and then home on the Sunday/Monday depending on whether we have sober drivers for the home leg the same day.
My idea was maybe no bikes to avoid issues with storing them during the event, but I'll leave that open to discussion.
Also open to ideas for other CX events if they work within a similar template.
