This weekend, the cyclo-cross world will descend on the unfamiliar location of Dübendorf, Switzerland to do battle for the rainbow stripes. On Saturday and Sunday, Cyclingnews will be bringing you race reports, results and news from each race.

Read on to find out how to watch all the races at the UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships via live stream, no matter your location, with ExpressVPN.

While the main attraction of the weekend will no doubt be Mathieu van der Poel's (Netherlands) battle with the Belgian squad, which includes Wout Van Aert, there's plenty more action on both days of competition.

It all kicks off with the junior women and U23 men early on Saturday, before the elite women's race in the afternoon. There, reigning champion Sanne Cant (Belgium) will be fighting with a phenomenally strong Dutch squad, which includes Yara Kastelijn, Ceylin del Carmen Alvarado, World Cup winner Annemarie Worst and Lucinda Brand.

On Sunday, it's the turn of the junior men (including Thibau Nys), U23 women and then, finally, the elite men's Worlds. Can Van der Poel take a third title? Or will Van Aert round off his comeback from injury with a fourth rainbow jersey? His teammates Eli Iserbyt and UCI World Cup winner Toon Aerts will also make their case for victory in a powerful Belgium team.
