Many of the world’s top cyclocross racers will descend upon Waterloo, Wisconsin this weekend for the Trek CXC Cup.
Featuring a new course designed with the help of cyclocross 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 lifestream, which will be hosted on trekbikes.com on Saturday and Sunday – with no global restrictions.
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 cyclocross.
“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.
