How the Race Was Won: 2014 Koppenbergcross

by Cosmo Catalano


The latest stop on cyclocross’s BPost Bank Trofee series includes a portion of the famous Koppenberg from Tour of Flanders, so what better time to take a look at this unique discipline? Tactics and pack dynamics will seem familiar, but as the laps roll on, ‘cross-specific skills, well-timed attacks, and strangely enough, lapped riders will all come into play in sorting out a winner.

In Cyclocosm’s “How the race was won” series, you’ll see much more than simple race highlights. Cosmo Catalano picks up the details that nobody else sees, analyses the race situation and its progression, and wraps it in his own brand of humour and razor sharp wit. We hope you enjoy it.
