Your Moment of SVENNESS 1.2

November 28th, 2014 — 5:16pm

For the second installment of YMOS we take a look at the steep off-camber section at the Soudal Classic race that took place November 11, 2014, in Niel, Belgium. The newly designed course features a man-made sand dune and a lot less pavement. It also features several great off-camber sections that forced riders to think […]

Your Moment Of SVENNESS 1.1

November 18th, 2014 — 12:11am

While we put together the next full-on SVENNESS episode, here is a bit of a return to the SVENNESS roots. For “Your Moment of SVENNESS” the idea is to take one feature on a course,¬†or one specific skill, and concentrate on just that. No race recap, just an analysis of one feature.This is similar to […]

SVENNESS 3.5

November 12th, 2014 — 3:38am

For Episode 3.5 of SVENNESS we travel to the Belgian province of Limburg for the Superprestige Zonhoven. The race is a fan favorite known for its two harrowing descents down the side of a sand dune. This year the sand certainly plays a role but it isn’t the dunes. Rather a short off-camber and flat […]

SVENNESS 3.4

November 7th, 2014 — 7:01am

For SVENNESS episode 3.4 we travel to the Koppenberg Cross in Oudenaarde, Belgium. The B-Post Trophy race uses the same cobbled climb, the Koppenberg, that features in the Tour of Flanders, but here it is more of a respite than a launching pad. The Koppenberg Cross is all about climbing and descending and those who […]

For episode 3.3 we take a trip to Valkenburg, Netherlands, for the first round of the UCI World Cup. The Valkenburg course is a tough one. Lots of elevation changes, difficult off-camber sections, a tough descent and a killer run-up. We spend a lot of time on the off-camber inspecting lines and technique. We also […]

The first World Cup Cyclocross race also meant the first time this year the pro women were broadcast, and that means we can finally premiere the first episode of LIKEAVOS, season two. Before we get to the race I want to once again address the name of this series. I will not conceal the fact […]

SVENNESS 3.2

October 17th, 2014 — 4:17pm

For SVENNESS 3.2 we go to Ronse, Belgium, for the first race in the Bpost Bank Trophy series. After young Mathieu van der Poel’s early season successes, Sven Nys called this race the “Battle of the Generations.” MvdP drew first blood getting a great start and showing some rad moves but in the end it […]
