Nijs and Stybar showing how it is done over the barriers.
All is right in the world, 'Cross is in full swing and Nijs is back on top. There is more smack talking going on prior to a World Cup CX event than prior to any of Foreman and Ali's meetings. But winning is the best deoderant and Nijs came out smelling like roses.
It is only a matter of time before UCI totally eliminates barries like in Tabor, for the 'disadvantage' it puts riders who cannot bunny-hop them. I say get some riding skills or have the fastest dismount-run-remount out there. If anything, I say make the course more technical, balance out the physical with the technical. But I am sure we will hear some more whining from Wellens on this topic...
Wellens and Fidea better get used to this view for 2008.
