Yup, nice work.

I think there's a mistake, though. Liévin is on Jan. 15. Glad they come back there. Better course than Pont-Château, no doubt.


Perhaps, you can add the Toi-Toi Cup: http://www.les-sports.info/cyclo-cross-toi-toi-cup-calendrier-2011-2012-s17-c0-b0-g185-u280.html

And the USGP Series: http://www.usgpcyclocross.com/about-the-series/series-info

The US nats also aren't the same weekend as the others but I don't know when exactly.

Boooooring. Can't wait for the real races to come up where more technical skills are required.

And he was very much un-Pauwels like! This is the first time I've seen him so active in a race. He has the charisma of a(n) *insert something witty here*, but I still kinda like him. Still an Albert fan though, so last 2 weeks have been some what annoying to say the least.

Pauwels was the Leipheimer of cyclocross last year :D

Vintage Kevin Pauwels.

The French like to see him as a wheelsucker. Sour grapes from the lost bronze medal, last year.

Truth is, when he is on, he's always aggressive. When not, he isn't.

Kevin's greatest performance. Zolder 2009. Lone ride since lap 1 resisting a top form Albert:

For some reason healways shows his full potential in Zolder. Enjoy it. The way cut down the turns is pure class act. :)

Not a Kev fan myself though it partly has to do with his cringeworthy interviews! Seems to go well on drier, fast courses. When the mud comes, it'll be more vintage Niels vs Sven. Even Zdenek isn't great in the deep stuff.

It's a "Sunday" in Belgium, so didn't even have to skip Uni for it :D

At least I don't think I have classes today. Meh, who cares :o

Nearly forgot it was cross today though, glad I remembered. I hope Niels wins, but it will most likely be Nys again. Wouldn't mind a first big victory of Styby either.

I'd say drier and fast courses suit Niels Albert best normally. He's not the best technical skilled crosser, but still one of the best of course. Especially in the sand.
