The Dutch Cycling Federation (KNWU) confirmed its team for the upcoming UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships which will take place on January 30 and 31 in Oostende, Belgium. The talent-packed team has the potential to win all four available titles, according to national team coach Gerben de Knegt.

"Wee have a chance to win the world title in all four races, but of course that doesn't mean I assume in advance that we will win all races," De Knegt said in a press release.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
