Life After Motocross: Jan Denuwelaere

From the celebrated “sorry cake” presented by Zdenek Stybar, to getting in the middle of the Wout/Sven Koppenbergcross sprint, to winning the elites without a contract Belgian national championship, Jan Denuwelaere (Crelan-Vastgoed Service) has plenty of amazing stories. Maybe a guest spot on Crosshairs Radio is in order. But before ever toeing the line on a cyclocross bike, Jan was racing motocross. Reading lines, cornering, handling, the similarities between the sports are plenty and the transition for Denuwelaere to a motor-less bike has been a successful one.

Belgian motocross website, MX World, has released part one of a three part video series featuring Jan and his transition from motocross to cyclocross. The article and photos are here: Although the video is in Dutch, it’s pretty easy to follow along. And the footage is worth seeing.

Also, make sure to give Jan a follow on his Instagram so you don’t miss gems like his backyard training track.
