The Koppenbergcross women's podium: Nikki Harris, Helen Wyman and Sanne Cant
Wyman, Harris top contenders in women's race
Great Britain will host the European cyclo-cross championships for the first time, and of the three fields which will contest for the titles: under-23 men, elite women and juniors, the British women have the best chances to come away with a victory.
Nikki Harris (Telenet-Fidea) has also been coming into the best form of her career, having won the Superprestige race in Ruddervoorde last month, and also joined Wyman on the podium in the Plzen World Cup and Koppenbergcross.
The pair will have to contend with a deep field which includes former world champion Hanka Kupfernagel (Germany), Belgian champion Sanne Cant and Dutch stand-out and Tabor World Cup winner Sanne van Paassen.
In the U23 field, Dutchman Mike Teunissen, winner of the World Cup in Tabor, Belgian Wietse Bosmans, who won the Plzen World Cup and Michael Vanthourenhout, winner of the Koppenbergcross are the top contenders for medals.
Junior world champion Mathieu van der Poel (Netherlands) has been so far undefeated this season, having claimed both World Cup victories as well as wins in Ronse, Ruddervoorde and Oudenaarde.
The racing begins on November 3 in Ipswich's Chantry Park at 11:00 with the junior championship, followed by the under-23 men at 12:30 and women at 14:00. Admission is free, parking costs £5.
