For episode 1.3 of Your Moment of SVENNESS we make a stop in Antwerp, Belgium, for Scheldecross. The course is dry and fast with several sand sections along the way. At the front of the race it was an early battle between three riders: Tom Meeusen, Laurens Sweeck and Mathieu van der Poel. After a few laps it was down to Sweeck and MvdP. We concentrate on one 180 degree sandy turn to see if riding or running is faster, and if that decision is one of the keys to winning the race.
