Skinny tyres, drop handlebars and mud. Lots of mud.

De Vlaeminck is right. Cyclocross has become too boring due to MVDP domination. If only he does not feel the need to humiliate his opponents so much and only use the last lap to win, it might become more interesting.
The women's race though remains exciting

I've prioritized watching the women's races lately and catching the men's races only if I have the time. Last sunday's race was great, again way more interesting than the men's. 4 different winners in 5 races, shapes up to be a nice world cup.

The problem with De Vlaeminck is that he's not a great communicator. I'm sure he admires Mathieu and has already said so but he makes it sound like it's Mathieu's fault that the field cannot keep up to him. Well in a way you cannot blame the opponents either for not having the same talent as Mathieu has unless you would argue that some like Wout can do better. That's what Roger seemed to suggest in a facetious way ("If I train him, Mathieu does not drop him"). Of course it's a quip but it made me laugh and suggests that Wout could do better (when he's free from all the transfer issues).

Besides, Roger also did dominate cyclocrosses from first to last lap in his days, but they weren't really televised at that time.

Roger just sounds like an old ex pro who is out of touch with the modern sport. 'If I train him, Mathieu does not drop him' - unbelievable comments, and totally clueless.
