Video: Crashes galore at Cyclo-cross World Championships

Which is more treacherous, mud or ice?

If you saw even just a few brief moments of the 2017 UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships, chances are you’ll have seen at least one rider fall. This video - by a 13-year-old and obviously rather less official than it purports to be – gathers together all the spills into one 3m39s package.

This year’s championships took place in Bieles, Luxembourg – and the icy course didn’t get any easier when parts were worn away to the rather more familiar mud.

The early footage features plenty of the GB riders who finished first, second and third in the junior race. After his win, Tom Pidcock acknowledge the impact of the conditions, saying: “I just made sure I didn’t crash. Just stayed upright and let the legs do the work.”

The men’s elite race was won by Wout Van Aert, while the women’s was won by another Belgian, Sanne Cant.

Alex has written for more cricket publications than the rest of the team combined. Despite the apparent evidence of this picture, he doesn't especially like cake.
