For episode 64 of Crosshairs Radio, the TDDTIE crew get together to break down the 2017 Cyclocross World Championships that took place in Bieles, Luxembourg. We go in depth on all five championship races. From the emotional British sweep of the junior men’s race to Wout’s green tyres and everything in between.
As we discussed in the episode, 2015-2016 Junior World CX Champion, Jens Dekker (@jens_dekker), provided us with his “best of” list for races to watch while on the trainer.
