Wow, what an incredible weekend of bike racing at the World Championships in Zolder. I'm pretty sure every event had incredible heart-stopping moments, although not all for the right reasons. The women's race was incredibly exciting, with so many lead changes, so many attacks and such a hard fought battle for the win. Cross really is an exciting sport to watch when the level of the riders is so equal. Although to be fair Thalita de Jong's last lap was significantly faster than anyone else's in the race.
