Some of the world’s top cyclo-cross riders are heading to Wisconsin this weekend for the Trek CXC Cup – and the bike manufacturer will be streaming the event live around the world.

Hosted on a new course designed with the help of cyclo-cross legend Sven Nys in the grounds of Trek’s headquarters in Waterloo, the event will feature riders including men’s world champion Wout van Aert.

The Belgian 21-year-old said: “I’m excited to race in Waterloo. It is an honour for me to show my rainbow jersey to the cross fans of Wisconsin and beyond. I see it as a perfect rehearsal for the first World Cup races in the States.”

Nys will be part of the commentary team on the livestream, which will be hosted on with no geo-restrictions on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 September.

There will be elite women’s and men’s races on both days, respectively starting at 1800 and 1915 UK time.

Race director Renee Calloway said: “We redesigned the course last year with a flyover, a new elite racer-only hill climb, and this year added a new elite downhill along with fun sections in the woods for all the racers. 

“This improved race course offers interesting challenges for all levels of competitors, has great spots for spectators, and showcases Trek’s commitment to cyclo-cross.

“For racers, we are proud to offer equal pay for both the elite men’s and women’s fields. For spectators, we are proud to offer an incredible two-day party on the grounds of Trek’s headquarters, including a junior girl’s clinic and kid’s races,” she added.
